Living Museum of the West
Sunday 7 September – Sunday 5 October 2014
Exhibition opening: Saturday 6 September 2014, 2-4pm. The exhibition will be opened by Councillor Grant Miles (Mayor, City of Maribyrnong).

The exhibition The Museum is the Region, the Region is the Museum has been envisaged as a way to re-establish West Space’s connection with the western suburbs of Melbourne, where West Space was founded in 1993. Presented off-site at the Living Museum of the West—and drawing upon the rich history of the western suburbs, as documented in the Living Museum’s own archive—this exhibition will feature newly commissioned work by a range of local and international artists that each respond to the geography and built heritage of this unique site. The Museum is the Region, the Region is the Museum brings together the stories of the many communities of the western suburbs through the Living Museum of the West’s unique and extensive archive of oral histories, photographic and video archives.
Artists: Avni Dauti, Lisa Radford and Kim Munro and Sam George, Susan Jacobs, Mikhail Karikis & Uriel Orlow, Kerrie Poliness, Geoff Robinson.
Curated by Danny Lacy, Liang Luscombe & Patrice Sharkey

This Digital Life

For those of us working in a digital field, or consumed by the digital world; freelancers, casuals, full-timers or part-timers in agencies, small businesses, or fending for ourselves.
Hear about the innovations and discoveries of people working in digital spaces, then share the more personal side of these mavericks and edge-bleeders as they discuss how they've managed (or failed!) to keep their lives balanced. Internet savvy, driven people that love a meme, but are sometimes overwhelmed by the way work and life smash together.

Arrive from 10:30am, breaking for lunch at 12:30pm.

Daniela Rodriguez, together with with Alzheimer’s Australia Vic and the Footscray Community Arts Centre will launch her new work, SILENT MEMORIES: Stories of Migrants Living with Dementia. Silent Memories is an ongoing project combining photography and film to explore the lives of migrants living with dementia. The project looks at issues such as cultural isolation, language barriers and the stigma of nursing homes in multicultural families.

The still images focus on the elderly with dementia, reflecting on memory and mirgration, and how their cultural heritage is vastly different to the situation they find themselves in, while video interviews address how families deal with having to place their loved-ones into a facility that is completely foreign to them.
