Building Home

March 25, 2024

April 29 - May 10

The Beaverbrook Art Gallery is pleased to present Building Home, an exhibition developed out of the Housing First for Youth (HF4Y) program. A team of artists, youth, case managers, and researchers transformed the findings from the program into an art installation that advocates for change in our communities. It will be on display in the Education Centre of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery from April 29th to May 10th.

The life-sized installation immerses viewers in the profound narratives of young individuals navigating housing instability in New Brunswick. Through this project, youth take charge of their narratives, highlighting how the search for safe and stable housing is not straightforward and often involves periods of shuffling through chaos.

By combining art, research, and advocacy, Building Home signals the importance youth have in our communities and aims to promote housing as a human right, promote youth voice, and hold youth housing and support programs to higher standards.

The life-sized installation will be on display at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery's Education Centre from Tuesday, April 30, until May 10. The exhibition is free of charge and can be accessed through the Education Centre doors.

Please note that if you would like to visit the rest of the gallery, regular admission charges apply.
