"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.
Interactive Engagement: Participants play a crucial role in shaping the artwork. By sharing their images and ideas of home, they become part of a growing archive that represents diverse perspectives on the concept of home.
Community Collaboration: APICHH fosters a sense of unity and collaboration within the community. It offers a platform for individuals to express themselves and contribute to a larger dialogue about home and belonging.
Collective Memory: The shared images and visuals form a collective memory that represents the multifaceted nature of home. This archive becomes a testament to the richness and diversity of personal experiences.
Large-Scale Installation: The submitted images will be incorporated into a captivating large-scale installation of moving photographs. This installation will be projected in various locations across the Halton Region, including Museums of Burlington (Joseph Brant Museum), the Town of Oakville, the Town of Milton, and the Town of Halton Hills.
Cultural Impact: The artwork will be showcased during Culture Days, providing an opportunity for a wider audience to engage with the project. This enhances the cultural fabric of the region by encouraging meaningful conversations about contemporary issues.
