Creative Homemaking: Visualising Home in Times of Crisis

Date and time
Wednesday, 23 March 2022
09.00 - 17.00

This one-day virtual symposium 'Creative Homemaking: Visualising Home in Times of Crisis' aims to bring together artists, researchers, curators, and the wider audience to discuss new perspectives and experiences in visualising home in times of crisis.


In recent times, the notion of ‘home’ has been associated with different experiences. For some individuals, the home has become a safe sanctuary from outside threats. For others, it has become a place of increased domestic tensions that have resulted in new challenges in the ways one is experiencing home.

We invite submissions that reflect how the home is experienced and negotiated and the multiple perspectives of ‘homemaking’ in relation to gendered narratives, ethnicity/race, tradition/modernity, and local and global politics.


The Symposium is part of an ongoing project led by Dr Maria Photiou and submissions will be considered for inclusion in a virtual exhibition and publication.
We welcome 20-minute proposals by artists, researchers and curators that explore the following themes:

Confirmed speakers will receive a £200 stipend.
