What does Home mean to you? Welcome to #APlacelCallHomeHalton a participatory community art project led by hybrid media artist Faisal Anwar.

#APlacelCallHomeHalton is an innovative artwork that considers how we find our home in a time of abundant migration and societal instability. Due to war, economic precariousness and climate change, more and more people worldwide and within Canada are being forced to move. We invite you to participate with this interactive artwork and reflect on what "HOME" means to you.

Share an image that represents an idea of Home. Tag @haltonartcultureheritage and use the hashtag #APlacelCallHomeHalton, or send visuals in a direct message. Your image will be reposted, becoming a part of our growing archive, and forming a collective memory of what Home is. Your visual content will also be added to a large-scale installation of photographs in motion, projected in various locations in Halton Region; Museums of Burlington (Joseph Brant Museum), the Town of Oakville, the Town of Milton, and thew Town of Hilton Hills, during Culture Days between Sep 13 to Oct 14 2023. Join us at Joseph Brant Museum on Thursday, September 28 from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m. to view the large-scale installation in person.

Follow @haltonartcultureheritage to stay involved and be a part of shaping an evolving visual concept of what 'Home' is.

Unique and Memorable:

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.

#APlacelCallHomeHalton is presented in collaboration with the Halton Region, Museums of Burlington, the Town of Oakville, the Town of Milton, and the Town of Halton Hills.
