Located 32 kilometres south-west of Melbourne’s CBD and comprising 17 rapidly growing suburbs, Wyndham City is emblematic of the possibilities and problematics of modern Australia at large. It has undergone vast expansion in the past decade, with what was once agricultural and industrial land, and before that the lands of the Bunurong and Wadawurrung peoples, developed and transfigured into vast and numerous housing estates offering competitively priced land and home packages. This new housing supports an increasingly multicultural community, with 48 percent of Wyndham's population born overseas. However, local infrastructure has struggled to keep up with population growth, placing pressure on roads and public transport, local economic opportunities, and social and civic amenities. As a result, residents and local artists alike are often forced to rethink the role their homes play in their daily lives, and to confront the undeniable relationship between the built and natural environments changing around them.
[AT HOME] Wyndham was created by Common Collective, with support from Wyndham City, Creative Australia, Creative Victoria and the Alastair Swayn Foundation. It was produced in collaboration with Scoundrel Projects.
Common Collective recognises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as sovereign First Peoples. We acknowledge the Bunurong and Wadawurrung Peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands on which [AT HOME] Wyndham took place, and further acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung People on whose lands this project was developed. We pay our respect to their Ancestors, and to Elders past, present and future.
