LOST IN BOOKS
LOST IN BOOKS is a kids' multilingual bookshop, café, safe space for women, creative learning centre, and language exchange hub. We're based in Fairfield, in south-western Sydney — Australia's most culturally diverse community.
The motion room
The Motion Room is a long term project in the Green Valley/ 2168 Postcode Area, Liverpool NSW. We use the arts to experiment, alongside local residents and services, with what could be possible if things were otherwise in Green Valley. We inquire into the root causes of the challenges local people experience, and see if we can find a workable solution by thinking like artists – outside the box.
We have identified some of 2168’s most pressing concerns, including food production, local transport, personal safety, digital connectivity, and the quality of public space. These issues have a real impact on the daily life, well-being, health and personal freedoms of the people in the 2168 community.
The Motion Room is joining with local people to think and do something together, to find positive new ways to engage and link people and resources to meet these needs.
AGAINST THE TIDE
Against The Tide is an interactive public artwork in production with the Think+DO Tank (the community agency development arm connected to the foundation). It is an innovative fusion of art, history and technology. With a state of the art mobile application, Against the Tide will take audiences between Sydney’s Circular Quay and Parramatta by ferry. Participants will discover the rich sediment of untold stories on Sydney’s Parramatta River and Harbour, the memory of the water itself.
