Welcome to We Try This at Home

We Try This at Home is the online presence of the exhibition Try This at Home and a crucial component of the exhibition. It will be a platform for the discussion of sustainability and ecological discourse on a national and local level, with posts from a wide variety of academics and leaders in these fields and profiles of members of the community who engage with sustainable practice in their everyday lives. And, with the help of viewers’ contributions to this site, the exhibition will perform the ways in which the urban contexts of our homes support or hinder our attempts to live sustainably, identifying opportunities for positive changes to the social and structural fabric of our city.

So please, do not just read this blog – get involved! Let loose on the comments section of posts and share your ideas. If you would like to contribute to the blog get in contact with us so we can make it happen.

We look forward to sharing with you a wide range of interesting engagements with sustainability over the coming months and to hearing your thoughts. Enjoy the blog and enjoy the exhibition!



Artists Talk at Object Gallery



Join participating artists Makeshift and the Slow Art Collective as they discuss the exhibition Try This At Home, in Object’s Project Space.

Both Makeshift and Slow Art Collective have taken an interactive approach in creating work for this exhibition, engaging with the local community around Object Gallery.

Makeshift will introduce their 6 Jars project giving you the chance to be part of a group of households that meet regularly as a collective with a commitment to circulating jars of homemade food or other household goods over the course of the exhibition, or even to initiate your own group.
