The UNSEEN Arts Hub was conceived and created by Belinda Mason, internationally acclaimed social documentarian and Creative Director of Blur Projects and was delivered through a partnership between Blur Projects and Women’s Electoral Lobby Australia with the financial support of City of Sydney and in-kind and financial support of many community groups, arts organisations, service providers, government and corporates. The hub is a unique outdoor mobile art installation centred around a chrome-finished Tiny House, Car and Couch whose unusual mirrored surfaces arouse curiosity and reflect the invisibility of women’s hidden homelessness in public consciousness, raising awareness of this urgent and growing problem. From the Hub’s visually engaging space women artists with lived-experience of homelessness display and perform their art and so provide us a rare opportunity to see and hear their diverse visions and voices up close and personal. The UNSEEN Arts Hub has been displayed in various locations around Sydney throughout 2021 and during 2022 will tour regional NSW. Additionally, the UNSEEN Project’scollection of artworks created by the women in the project are available for exhibition in traditional indoor gallery spaces. In this case, the Chrome Car and/or Chrome Tiny House can be used to support gallery exhibitions or associated events.
