As part of the Home Affairs exhibition, twenty poets perform live readings of their poems in response to the theme, selected by Michele Seminara, event curator and managing editor of Verity La.

The exhibition features new works by 38 artists from Sydney’s Northern Beaches and members of the Manly Art Gallery & Museum Society. The artists explore the concept of home as a place, an idea, a possibility, a refuge, a presence, a contested space, an escape or a memory. Through art we can explore old meanings and create new ones to delve deeper into the social or political meaning of ‘home’.
