EXHIBITIONS: THE MOTION ROOM
30 Sep 2017 - 19 Nov 2017 | 11.00am - 5.00pm
The Motion Room presents the results to date from an ongoing project that investigates, supports, and works to increase community control over everyday life in Green Valley, Liverpool, and in central Fairfield.
Through inquiry, listening, experimentation and testing new ideas alongside local people, The Motion Room is guided by the question: what would make life easier or better for you?
The Motion Room is an ongoing experiment, drawing heavily on the arts and design, to find ways for local people to shape their own tomorrow by addressing challenges of food security; transport disadvantage; digital inclusion; and community safety.
Think+DO Tank Foundation and the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre are excited to present The Motion Room exhibition. It features works made by women and young people living in the Green Valley and broader Liverpool communities in collaboration with; Katie Green, Province Studio (Anne-Louise Dadak & Laura Pike), Joey Ruigrok van der Werven, Monica Kumar, Luke Cignarella, Afaf Al-Shammari, Jane Stratton, Pia Larsen, Janet Parker-Smith, Annie McKinnon, Claudia Chidiac, Dominique Hage, Kim Siew, Nicole Barakat, Stephanie Peters, Hepa Taahi, Cabinet of Wonder (Tim Jetis), and Velinda Wardell.
The Motion Room is a collaborative and long-term project that Think+DO Tank Foundation brokers with a range of partners and supporters, each of whom is specifically acknowledged and recognised throughout this exhibition to highlight their connection and importance to each project. However, we make special mention of our consortium partners Liverpool Women’s Resource Centre, Western Sydney Migrant Resource Centre, South West Sydney Local Health District and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre.
Exhibition launch: Saturday 7 October, 1-4pm
