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. Link Housing has community houses located in Lane Cove.
This Exhibition is all about shining a light on the growing role of community housing.
No Place Like Home
This is the third year Link Housing will be hosting a community art exhibition. This year the art exhibition is called “No Place Like Home”.
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’. The exhibition included works from well known Sydney Based Artist Jane Bennett. Bennett’s paintings highlight the struggles of housing displacement and the importance of having a safe, secure home to positively transform people’s lives.
The works will be displayed for free in professional galleries in the Northern Beaches, Hornsby and other north shore spaces to be confirmed.
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 as the work honours the theme: There is No Place Like Home.
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
‘The current housing market is tough. Not everyone has access to stability and security – but everyone has a right to it. This exhibition enables individuals to share their stories and contribute to a much larger and vital dialogue.’
