Know your neighbour

About the exhibition

In Know your neighbour artists are asked to think about their connections to neighbours: be they local, national or international. 

We ask artists to consider:

  • why are neighbours important?
  • what does it mean to be a good neighbour?
  • what do our relationships with our neighbours look like?
  • how have our neighbourhoods (local and global) changed over the past decade?

Expressions of interest closed: 11:59 PM Sunday 8 December 2019.
