The Exchange at Knowledge Market presents Home Truths, a portrait exhibition of Victoria Harbour locals by Nicholas Walton-Healey.
The Home Truths Portrait Exhibition follows The Exchange portrait workshop, where residents and workers of Victoria Harbour, Docklands were invited to express what 'home' means to them. Participants' portraits were captured by award winning photographer Nicholas Walton-Healey, while The Exchange research team gathered diverse impressions of what home and belonging mean in Victoria Harbour.
Join us for the opening celebration of Home Truths and get to know the community that make up this unique pocket of Melbourne.
