What does home mean to you? A new, community-led and informed exhibition looks to explore this. Home can be many things – a feeling, place, person – whatever the case, there’s no place like home.
Members of the community are invited to participate in this exhibition by hashtagging photos that reflect what home means to then with #feelslikehome. Submitted images will be printed and included in a crowd-sourced exhibition project that illustrates how home and a sense of community can be one and the same.

The hope is to fill the exhibition space from floor to ceiling with printed 4 x 6 pictures.
While typically, community driven exhibitions ask the community to respond to its collections, this time, the RMG will respond to the community. The RMG’s Curator of Collections will select photographs from the Thomas Bouckley Collection that highlight reoccurring themes around the feeling of home.
The Thomas Bouckley Collection was started when local historian Thomas Bouckley put his photo documentation of Oshawa together with collected images. This collection is continually growing as Oshawa grows and develops.
