In association with the MAC, MY PLACE is the story of the magic of the everyday told through a child's perspective.
Presented as two short films - an installation and a virtual gallery tour - both available to watch for free on QFT Player as part of the Belfast Children's Festival 2021.
During 2020 our homes became ever more familiar, whilst being cast in an unusual new light. What did we learn about how we live, about what we value and about what we share with those around us?
Young at Art Artists Jane Butler and Duncan Ross asked schoolchildren across Belfast to tell their stories about this transformative time, from the perspective of the special objects they found within their homes.
MY PLACE is the result of this creative exchange, showing experiences of the pandemic through the eyes of our children.
Filmed for Belfast Children’s Festival 2021 at the MAC.
