Free event

Saturday 13 October 12:00pm- 1:00pm (Launch)

Handmade dolls made by women connected to Kensington in 1983 and 2018, with stories old and new. From Monday, 15 October the exhibition will be at The Festival Hub

The Return to the Dollhouse Exhibition is a celebration and replication of a project, Return to the Dollhouse that originally took place 25 years ago. In 1983, 24 women made dolls that celebrated their cultural diversity. Using these dolls as inspiration, a group of 14 women have come together at the Kensington Neighbourhood House this year to tell their stories and make their own dolls.

The Return to the Dollhouse Exhibition brings both projects together. Dolls from 1983 and 2018 will be on display along with photographs and stories, both old and new.

Join us for the launch of the exhibition on 13 October.
