"Another world is not only possible. She is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” – Arundhati Roy

Open Homes proudly presents this creative collaboration that symbolises hope, strength and resiliency of a plurivesal world as we remember how to be a humble part of the biological web of life through the practice of intensive backyard food production.

This exhibition highlights the importance of having different voices and cultural world views cohering together around the organising principle of maintaining a collective spirit, making the local soil fertile and productive together.

It is an artwork that is the antithesis of the universalising ideologies of progress that undermines cultural diversity and suppresses all life by poisoning the land and enclosing people's capacity to imagine a different world.

Open Homes collaborators are; Charles and Grace Buenconsejo, Marc Conaco, Kirsty Fong, Auggie Fontanilla, Dan Kelly, Tanya Ruka and Helen Yeung.


ALL GOODS is a community-led art space that is flexible and accessible, providing an inclusive homebase for people in the Whau to participate in the arts. It is a space to strengthen connections, develop ideas, create and share mahi. We welcome artists and people of all abilities and interests to run projects, hold workshops, kōrero and make and experience art.
