This is Our Place: Old Weston

This is Our Place is a public dance residency and a call for artists to activate everyday spaces. With our core mission to support community driven art and provide accessible activities we understand the importance of shared environment and acknowledge we are visitors on this land. Our purpose is to connect and encourage urban embodiment —never to displace.

The first iteration of dance residency This is Our Place was held within a residence. Hosted by homeowner Andrew Williamson, six local dance artists were given space to make and work in an empty house. There was a culminating showing on the last day where guests were guided through an intimate performance.
