West Projections Festival Inc and Victoria University acknowledge the traditional owners of this land, the Kulin Nation. We offer our respects to Elders past, present and future and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
West Projections Festival Inc. and Victoria University are proud to present the Festival in its sixth year.
In 2019, the Festival will delve into the theme of Home.
Home can be a place, a safe place, a house, apartment or other shelter. What makes a home? We share homes with families, lovers, friends and strangers. It can be a place of retreat and sanctuary or of shift and transition. Home is temporary for some and permanent for others. Domestic confines or domestic bliss. It can be a positive or negative space.
The artists involved have been invited to investigate their sense of place and their own definition of home using the eclectic canvas of Footscray, Seddon and West Footscray. Home will be illuminated in shopfronts, bars, artist galleries and studios, public spaces, Victoria University campuses and laneways.
West Projections Festival encourages audiences to explore their shared urban environment after dark.
