Curated by Alison Dollery and Sophie Nowakowska, the show opened up a conversation about „What do we need art for?” and was a dedication to bridging contemporary art with the Crawley local community during the WORDfest: Crawley’s Festival of Words.

Art is a vital conduit for expressing our emotions, ideas, and experiences that often transcend the boundaries of language. It can manifest in myriad forms, from paintings and sculptures to music and literature, each medium offering a unique lens through which we can explore our deepest thoughts and feelings.
The creation of art mirrors the act of building a home. Just as we adorn our living spaces with photographs, books, and colours that resonate with our personal stories, art allows us to find a way of creating tangible representations of our memories, both joyous and sorrowful, our scars, our love, and our very selves.
This personal aspect of art makes each creation uniquely significant to its creator. Just as no two homes are exactly alike, each work of art holds a distinct essence that reflects the individuality of its maker. It’s a physical manifestation of one’s internal world, a world that invites others to step in, explore, and perhaps find a piece of themselves within.
