What if you could see your neighbourhood in a new light – even if you’ve lived there for years? Explore the visual diaries of residents aged 14 to 70 as they find joy and beauty in daily rhythms, buildings, animals, and people that shape their neighbourhoods. Examine how shifting their focus to search for new things, helped them to discover new worlds and appreciate familiar ones.

Guided by photographer Deanna Ng and multidisciplinary artist Marc Nair through a series of photography and creative writing workshops, participants learnt to combine images and the written word in meaningful and creative ways. They also worked closely with the instructors on the curation of the show.

Enjoy the exhibition, and who knows, like them, you may learn to notice something new in your routine.
