Home. What is it? What does it mean? How do we understand it? How do we capture it?
As children of immigrants who are living on Treaty Six territory, what does home mean to us? As Muslims living in North America, what does belonging look like, especially given the recent political climate? As people of colour living in a time of immense fear mongering, what does it mean to build a home and community amongst friends and strangers? Over the past year, The Green Room’s Leadership Team has been unpacking this concept through photography. Capturing the fleeting moments, places, times, people, and memories that define home, the team documented how they’ve each come to see and understand belonging, displacement, rootedness, and family.
From the familiar and comfortable captures of their bedrooms to the unfamiliar and vulnerable snapshots of public spaces, the HOME exhibit captures the warm and harsh realities of home, beyond the four walls of a house.
