Co- created by Abigail Conway and Lucy Hayhoe

Since 2007, Subject to_change have toured their show home sweet home to national and international acclaim including festivals and venues like The Cultch, Vancouver (2011), SPILL festival, Ipswich (2012), Perth International Arts Festival, Australia (2012), Kyoto Experiment, Kyoto (2013), Theaterfestival Basel, Basel (2014), Berliner Festspiele, Berlin (2016) and the Southbank Centre, London (2016).  

home sweet home is an interactive installation, in which every audience member has the opportunity to build themselves a house and become part of a small, but perfectly formed cardboard community.


The development boasts a number of services to help settle you in – a notice board, a postal service, a councillor and even a local FM radio station Residents FM. Meet your neighbours, explore the city, get to know the world around you. At the end of the event a street party is held where residents can celebrate with each other and take their new homes, home.
