"A Place I Call Home Halton" (APICHH) is an innovative and thought-provoking community-driven artwork created by Oakville-based artist Faisal Anwar. APICHH is not just an artwork, but an opportunity for individuals and communities to engage, reflect, and contribute to a collective exploration of the concept of "HOME" in the context of today's world marked by migration, societal changes, and instability.

What you can do from anywhere:

APICHH invites the public to participate in a meaningful and interactive experience that revolves around the idea of "HOME." Participants are encouraged to share images that capture their personal interpretation of home. These images can be shared on social media platforms by tagging the APICHH Instagram account and using the hashtag #APlaceICallHomeHalton. Alternatively, participants can also send their visuals directly through a direct message.

The tagged photo will be added to a large-scale installation of photographs in motion and will be projected on a wall and displayed on monitors.

The APICHH artwork will be showcased during Culture Days, from September 23 to October 14, 2023. The projections will take place in prominent locations within the Halton Region, offering a unique visual experience to both local residents and visitors.

What makes "A Place I Call Home Halton" unique and memorable is its ability to engage the community on a deeply personal and introspective level. It creates a space for individuals to contemplate their own notions of home, while also contributing to a larger narrative. The interactive nature of the project, the inclusion of diverse perspectives, and the visual spectacle of the projected installation all come together to create an experience that is not only visually striking but also emotionally resonant. It's an opportunity for people to connect through Faisal’s artwork with each other and their surroundings through a shared exploration of a fundamental concept: home.
