Home: Worlds Within
The Thresholds Project
An exhibition of 'dioramas' made by students exploring ideas of home, public and private space. Home:Worlds Within is an exhibition of artworks made by nearly 100 local young people from The North Cambridge Academy, and St Bedes, Chesterton, Netherhall and Coleridge schools.
Hidden amongst the collection of bygones at the Museum of Cambridge is an exhibition of tunnel-book 'dioramas', carefully constructed from photographs, drawings and collage. These miniature worlds, made by students from schools around the city, represent personal thoughts about their homes, reflecting the different social and cultural backgrounds of the communities within the neighbourhoods of Cherry Hinton, East Barnwell, Arbury and Kings Hedges.
The exhibition featured as part of the Curating Cambridge Festival and was curated by students from the participating schools.
Part of the Thresholds Project – a public art project for the Cambridge Affordable Housing Framework commissioned by Cambridge City Council in partnership with Keepmoat Homes.The Thresholds project is funded by section 106 planning obligations to fund Public Art projects that “benefit local communities and enhance a sense of place”.
