Who are you? Where are you from? Where do you belong? The letters home project, collated by the ME4 writing collective, invites people to write a letter to the place they think of as home, this has resulted in a collection of evocative and emotional writing, forming the basis for the exhibition. Local photographer Nikki Price, who regularly works with ME4, has taken images of home to as part of the exhibition, and a selection of local artist Heather Haythornthwaite’s atmospheric scenes of Rochester streets will also feature. Sam Hall, who is curating the exhibition says ‘I hope that visitors to the exhibition will be inspired to look again closely at where they live and find the beauty in the little things we like about our homes’
Sam is also running some writing workshops, where you can come along and contribute your own letter to the exhibition. There will be a chance for everyone to post their own letter at the exhibition, during the event and all through the exhibition run. The exhibition will be at Rochester community hub Saturday, 3 November to Saturday, 15 December 2012 with a second exhibition at Walderslade Village library Saturday, 10 November to Friday, 7 December 2012
After the exhibition all the letters created will be put on a blog as a lasting record.
