Join us for this special online event featuring artist Idit Elia Nathan in conversation with curator Natalie Pace.

Idit will introduce her project ‘Draw Me a Home’ which is being presented online and in the windows at the Departure Lounge gallery, Bute Street, Luton from Monday 13 July 2020.


Idit will also talk about her art practice, share her experiences of working in Luton and discuss the artworks she will present both online and in the windows at Departure Lounge.


AboutDraw Me a Home:Draw Me a Home is a new project by interdisciplinary artist Idit Elia Nathan. Based on Luton’s rich history of migration, and the artist’s own family history, it explores ideas of home, belonging, movement and transformation.


Inspired by conversations and encounters across Luton and on social media, Idit is developing new works which respond specifically to the sudden changes imposed by the Coronavirus outbreak. These works will be displayed online here and in the first of a series of artist “takeovers” of the gallery windows from 13 July – 16 August 2020.


Nathan’s long-standing interest in notions of ‘home’ is rooted in the experiences of her own family migrating from one place to another and, like themes of climate change and colonisation, inspires her artistic practice. Often participatory, Idit’s work is playful and draws on her theatrical background, sometimes taking the form of games, photographs or interactive objects.


Draw Me a Home is generously funded by Art Council England. It is organised by Departure Lounge, in partnership with The Culture Trust, Luton and with the collaboration of curator Natalie Pace. With special thanks to the support provided by Revoluton Arts, Luton.
