Making Community Happen in the Outerspace Gallery
June 29, 2013 @ 10:00 am - July 18, 2013 @ 5:00 pm
“These days communities are a rarity and they need a strong collective will and considered action to sustain them. Where they are themselves enlightened and liberated, they encourage and nurture this among their members.” – Paradise Lost? The Colonisation of Community, Linda Blincko, LOUD 34, 2006.
You are invited to participate in our very special project Making Community Happen.
Making Community Happen is an ongoing project celebrating the people (yourself included) and places of Devonport that contribute and have contributed to the Devonport community. Through your participation this project aims to explore the dynamics of community identity and the distinct and renowned character of the Devonport community. This exhibition in Outerspace Gallery is an introduction to a wider project to take place in 2014 and which begins here by creating a dialogue about how important community is and how it can be sustained.
Participation is easy! The Outerspace Gallery will feature simple ways to interact such as adding the names of people and places that make Devonport not just a place but a community to you. You are also invited to bring in photos, artwork and ephemera (such as newspaper clippings or objects) of meaning to you in relationship to this community.
Making Community Happen will be open in Outerspace Gallery from Saturday June 29.
