This ongoing series of micro-events hosted in people's homes will celebrate the home as a place of action. Each event will bring together new groups of people, creating spaces to engage with contemporary arts practices, through workshops, making, film screenings and shared spaces for conversation.

We want our programme of Home Actions to build relationships with the places where people live, and explore the intersections between communities, homes and ecologies. It will bring together artists and residents in the space of someone’s home through issues of shared interest, and create a discursive space for artists and the public.

All Home Actions are free but places are limited because they are hosted in peoples homes.Booking is essential. They can be booked through Eventbrite using the links below
