Calling textile groups from the Canberra region! 
 The Map Project: Where I Live 
A textile exhibition in 1.5m square format open to fibre art groups of the Canberra region. 14 October – 6 November 2016, opening Friday 14 October 

We all have a connection to a place, a story or memory. In 2016 Belconnen Arts Centre joins with the community in celebrating 50 (+ 50,000) years of Belconnen. The Map Project: Where I Live, will be part of the celebrations. This iteration of The Map Project continues artists’ explorations of the meaning of the place we call home, which began with artist Istra Toner in Croatia in 2013 and has spread to the UK and now Australia.

Textile groups from the ACT and region are invited to respond collaboratively to the concept of: “mapping: where I live;” by exploring ideas of home, place and belonging. Entrants are encouraged to engage playfully, thoughtfully, radically, or somewhere in between. We invite investigation and interpretation of geography, culture, history and community relationships along with the personal perceptions and meanings of living and being at home through the tactile, rich and varied medium of textiles.

Successful entrants in The Map Project: Where I Live will be notified by Friday 9 September 2016 by email.

More information about the Map Project is at http://themapproject13.blogspot.com.au
NB On the entry form, groups interested in sending their work on to future exhibitions must agree to their group contact details being forwarded to Map Project coordinators. 

If you have any questions or require further information please contact Monika McInerney, Creative Program Director on (02) 6173 3304 or monika.mcinerney@belconnenartscentre.com.au.
