Idit Elia Nathan— Draw Me a Home
Draw Me a Home is a new project by Idit Elia Nathan. Based on Luton’s rich history of migration, it explores ideas of home, belonging, movement and transformation. The unprecedented and sudden changes imposed by the Corona virus outbreak have fundamentally changed our understanding of ‘home’ as we sit out a unique set of officially mandated social distancing measures. Originally planned as series of public consultation ‘pop-ups’ in various sites across Luton, Idit in collaboration with Departure Lounge has moved the remaining pop ups online. Starting Tuesday 21 April we will regularly update the project’s Facebook page, Instagram Channel and Twitter with questions like:
‘Do you remember when – what was the most memorable thing about your childhood home’?
‘Ch ch ch changes – how has your experience of home changes since the outbreak began’?
What role will the ‘home’ play during this unprecedented period of self-isolation and extended separation? You can join in the conversation @drawmeahome and an edited selection of these impressions will be hosted on the Draw Me a Home Journal. You can also find a list of the current provocations here.
Draw Me a Home is generously funded by Arts Council England. It is organised by DepartureLounge and is delivered in partnership with The Culture trust.
