No Place Like Home

No Place Like Home

A monthly workshop series presented by Gungahlin and Woden Arts

February – November 2022

Workshops run on the first Saturday of the month in Gungahlin and the second Saturday of the month in Woden

$20 per person | Bookings open one month prior to each workshop

No Place Like Home is a series of affordable, creative workshops that invite Woden and Gungahlin residents to connect with and shape the place they call home. Engage deeply with your surroundings while spending a Saturday morning learning from local artists. Each workshop is a fabulous opportunity to uncover hidden treasures in your own backyard through drawing, printmaking, photography, indigenous knowledge and more.

Artworks, photographs and quotes from participants in these workshops will be curated into an end of year community exhibition presented in both Woden and Gungahlin which explores our connection to place in these two very different suburban Canberra communities. All contributions to the exhibition are voluntary, and not a requirement of participating in the workshops.

The workshops are open to all levels of artistic experience. Workshops are designed with adults in mind, but passionate children and young people are welcome too. However, please note that all children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Bookings for each workshop will open one month prior to the start date.

No Place Like Home is a collaborative program, brought to you by Gungahlin Arts and Woden Arts and is supported by the ACT Government through the Woden/Gungahlin Pop Ups program. For more details on No Place Like Home workshops in the Woden region visit the Tuggeranong Art Centre website.
