Sydney Ideas - Reimagining Home in the 21st Century

28 September 2017

A Sydney Ideas forum co-presented with the Department of Media and Communications

Is home a closed-off and self-sufficient place, or can it be reimagined to be where we find our connections to others and the world?

By exploring home in relation to the figure of the stranger and public space, as well as with a focus on practices of dwelling and materialities, the authors of Reimagining Home in the 21st Century demonstrate that thinking differently about home advances our understanding of belonging as a social process in which we are all implicated.

Join us for a panel discussion with some of the contributors as they suggest that our home does not ‘belong’ to us, rather we ‘belong’ to home.
