Home is where your heart is

In the New Museum we are exploring stories about what it means to be Western Australian.

Through a partnership with the Centre for Stories, we’ve been working with eight Western Australians who shared their stories about why they choose to live in WA, and what home means to them.

Through a series of short videos, our storytellers shared their thoughts about:

  • moving to Western Australia from faraway places;
  • moving from a regional town to the city;
  • the sense of feeling between two places; and
  • finding your true self and realising a sense of love and belonging within.

The Voices gallery in the New Museum will share stories of Western Australians from around the State, looking at concepts of identity, culture, migration, living and working in our State and the ways West Aussies play and recreate in our beautiful State.

We’d like to thank our storytellers, Centre for Stories and filmmaker Jarrad Seng, for delving into the notion of home and sharing their stories.
