Home Is… The Exhibition, is a one of kind thought provoking exhibition fusing poetry with visual arts in exciting print and video installations, incorporating dance, animation, illustration and documentary in a dynamic conversation between people and art forms about how individuals conceptualise home and how our emotional or physical displacement narratives help to shape what ‘home is’.
Having interviewed over 30 people, their stories inspired new poems from a diversity of amazing writers. Animators, dancers and illustrators were then commissioned and tasked with creating new pieces inspired by the poetry whilst Poetics collaborated with documentary filmmaking to tell the stories of the many voices recorded in London and Manchester over the development of the project.
The end result is a visual celebration of poetry and human journeys to a sense of home.
