Exhibition 26/03/2021


Finding Home is an exhibition based on the Engaging Youth in Regional Australia Study led by Dr Candice Boyd from the University of Melbourne and funded by the Australian Research Council. The research took place in three regional towns – Griffith NSW, Hedland WA, and Port Lincoln SA. Each of these towns is experiencing net youth outmigration despite their strong local economies. The research sought to better understand the reasons why young people leave these areas but also why some choose to stay, and others return.

The exhibition includes work by researchers and participants involved in the study and features handmade textiles by artist-activist Tal Fitzpatrick, and a collaboration between mother-daughter, Aboriginal artists Lorna Dawson and Kimberley McKie.
