Online art exhibition highlights the importance of a home

October 8, 2020

Due to popular demand, Link Housing has extended the time that this year’s No Place Like Home online art exhibition will be live and available for people to visit.

Artworks from community housing tenants and professional artists from around Australia will continue to be displayed on the exhibition website until 30 October 2020.

Due to COVID-19, the No Place Like Home 2020 art exhibition moved online. Our online art exhibition attracted more than 90 applications and more than 80 people registered for our Zoom Launch event on 1 September 2020.

Event attendees heard from tenants who entered artworks, and special guests including renowned Aboriginal artist Bibi Barba and City of Ryde Councillor Penny Pedersen. And watched the exhibition walkthrough video live.

This year, we have the pleasure of showing pieces from well-known artists including Julie Peadon, Ting Ying Chang, Goya Torres and so many more. Some of the artworks are for sale, with prices starting from $90.

View the artworks, and watch the launch event and walkthrough video.

Now in its 5th year, the exhibition continues to raise awareness about the need for safe, affordable and secure housing to help the most vulnerable in our community.

Artists respond to the ‘No Place Like Home’ theme by expressing what a home means to them through a variety of artworks. The exhibition is free to enter and open to the public and all levels of experience.

Our CEO, Andrew McAnulty has seen the growth of the exhibition over the years and what the exhibition means to Link Housing staff members, tenants and the broader community.

Featured on Ticker TV recently, Andrew spoke about how the exhibition adapted to the online space. As well as the important message No Place Like Home carries: everybody deserves to have a place to call home.

Watch the interview with Andrew from eighteen minutes and ten seconds into the video.

In previous years, the exhibition travelled between several professional art galleries and public spaces in Northern Sydney. No matter what form the exhibition takes next year, we welcome all to apply. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for updates.
