Link Housing is one of the oldest not-for-profit community housing providers in NSW having been formed in 1983. Link now manages around 1500 homes across Northern Sydney. Link Housing aims to give a compassionate, client-centred service for people who are at risk of homelessness or are unable to afford market-priced private rental in the Sydney region.
One of ITC followers is a Link Housing employee and they alerted us to Link Housing’s Art Exhibition. This Exhibition is all about shining a light on the growing role of community housing.
What A Home Means To You
This is the second year Link Housing will be hosting a community art exhibition. This year the art exhibition is called ‘What a Home Means to You’.
Last year, over forty artists contributed to the exhibition using a range of mediums, including paint, ceramics, and sculpture. The eclectic mix of art and interpretations of the theme encouraged thought and reflection on the importance of a ‘home’.
Link Housing is inviting all artists to submit their artwork, which will be placed on display. You can use any medium you like, as long the work honours the theme: What a Home Means to You.
Why is Link Holding Holding this Exhibition?
As well as bringing the community together, Link Housing hope to shine a light on the growing role of community housing and explore key themes such as affordability and homelessness.
Andrew McAnulty, CEO at Link Housing said.
‘Art can be a wonderful expression of our thoughts and ideas and we encourage the community to take part in this terrific initiative. It is a great opportunity for us to think about the rule ‘home’ plays in our lives.’
