Since 2007 the exhibition has grown to become an important part of the annual community arts calendar in Canberra. 

For this year’s Exhibition & Competition we were delighted to invite Canberra renters to submit an artwork that responds to the theme A sense of home.  This exhibition celebrates strength in community and it's connection to the senses.

Please vote for your favourite artwork in our 'People’s Choice', for your chance to win a $50 voucher!

The voucher ballot will be drawn at the exhibition awards event (dates and times TBA).

The exhibition also incorporates the We Rent Portrait Project. We Rent is an initiative of the Tenants' Union ACT in collaboration with local photographers, that aims to give a face and voice to the diverse community of renters in Canberra. The We Rent series showcases beautiful black and white portraits of Canberrans living in their homes, along with short interviews about what 'home' means to them. For more information go to the We Rent page.

International Tenants' Day 2019 Exhibition & Competition is organised with the help of the Tenants' Union ACT, Street LawACT Shelter, Better Renting and with funding from Housing ACT
