Manufacturing Entertainment is happy to present “A Place I Call Home”, a large-scale, interactive projection installation by Faisal Anwar for the Lights On The Exchange Festival, January 21 to March 21, 2023
Due to war, societal instabilities and climate change, more and more people around the world and within Canada are being forced to move. Artist Faisal Anwar is inviting people to participate in his new interactive artwork and reflect on what “HOME” means to them. Anyone can post a photo on Instagram and tag it with #APlaceICallHomeProject. The tagged photo will be added to a large-scale mosaic of photographs that will be projected on a wall located at 492 Main Street in the Exchange District of Winnipeg.
You are invited to add your photos of “a place you call home” to the projection by posting to Instagram and tagging it with #APlaceICallHomeProject
