Draw Me a Home is a new project by interdisciplinary artist Idit Elia Nathan. Based on Luton’s record of migration, and the artist’s own family history, it explores ideas of home, belonging, movement and transformation.

Inspired by conversations and encounters across Luton and on social media, Idit is developing new works which respond specifically to the sudden changes imposed by the Coronavirus outbreak. From Monday 13 July works will be displayed on Departure Lounge’s website and in the first of a series of artist “takeovers” in the gallery windows, until 16 August 2020.

Further details on the project can be found here.

To mark the launch of this project, Idit will be in-conversation via Zoom with curator Natalie Pace at Revoluton Arts’ Creative Café on Wednesday 15 July from 6.30-7.30pm. You can book your place via Eventbrite.

Draw Me a Home is generously funded by Art Council England. It is organised by Departure Lounge, in partnership with The Culture Trust, Luton and with the collaboration of curator Natalie Pace. With special thanks to the support provided by Revoluton Arts, Luton.
