Exhibition & Competition Opening Night
When: Friday 22 September, 5:30pm - 7pm
Join us for the opening night of this year's International Tenants' Day Exhibition & Competition! The exhibition will be officially opened by Deputy Chief Minister Yvette Berry. Come and enjoy the celebration, artworks, and free drinks and nibbles.
The exhibition runs at Belconnen Arts Centre from 22 September - 15 October.
It features 25 unique artworks made by talented and diverse artists who rent their homes in Canberra. Artists have been asked to respond to the 2017 ITD theme 'People, Pets, Place'. The winning entries will be decided by judge Ingeborg Hansen, CEO and Artistic Director of Megalo Print Studio + Gallery.
The exhibition will also include the We Rent portrait project, featuring portraits and interviews by local photographers Alex Catalan Flores and Isabelle Lee in collaboration with the Tenants' Union ACT. For more information check out the We Rent gallery page.
2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the ITD Exhibition & Competition. Since 2007 the exhibition has grown to become an important part of the annual community arts calendar in Canberra.
This is a family-friendly event, open to the public.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
