Home Project 3: Meet the Artists

We are excited to begin the third annual Home Project which this year focuses on the theme of Small Worlds, asking the question, what does your world encompass?  Is it your home, your family, your street, your community, your job or your friends?  Is your world the city you live in or the place you were born?

The Home Project is an intercultural arts programme working with Terra Nova Productions to offer professional mentorship to emerging artists as well as the opportunity to gain real experience working in community facilitation.  Working closely with community groups in east Belfast and using arts as a tool, our artists will discuss the theme of Small Worlds in the context of the diverse communities living in Belfast today.

We were overwhelmed with applications from up and coming artists this year and are pleased to finally announce the four artists who will be taking part in the project.  

Wanting Wu

Wanting (or Ting to her friends) is a dance artist and PhD student specialising in dance research. 

Originally from Beijng, Ting works within Chinese dance, K-Pop and contemporary dance genres but

wishes to challenge the boundary created by dance and experiment more with fusion choreography across

Ireland.

 

 

 

 

 


Aneta Murawska

Aneta is a free lance performer and dance teacher. Originally from Poland

she came to Northern Ireland over 16 years ago, during that time she became

a mother of two and finished HND in Dance - Performing Arts. Within the project

she would like to experiment and use dance to describe deep hidden emotion. 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Thais Garcia

Thais is a Graphic Design Post Graduate, a degree which is a consistent

and natural progression that lead to the necessary skills and experience

for her career-change and transition to Visual Information Communication.

Thais has a playful aesthetic with a child touch and she loves cartoons,

sketches, and illustration.  She tends to use her travel experiences abroad as

inspiration for her art!  

 

 

 


Michaela Nash

Michaela is currently a third year Fine Art Media student at the National College of Art

and Design in Dublin and has a particular focus on photography and video installation art. 

Some of Michaelas previous projects have focused on her experiences as a multi-racial

Northern Irish Artist but she has also explored themes around mental illness and the stigmas

which surround it.

 

 

 

 

 


All four of our artists will be working within the east Belfast community throughout January-February 2019 with the aim of creating new art pieces in response to the conversations they have.  The new art pieces can be seen in a showcase event which will take place on 21st February 2019.
