A mixed exhibition showing work about places that are special and

The term is used in urban and rural studies in relation to place-making and the attachment of communities to their environment or homeland. Anthropologists Steven Feld and Keith Basso define a ‘Sense of Place’ as:
‘The experiential and expressive ways places are known, imagined, yearned for, held, remembered, voiced, lived, contested and struggled over. Many indigenous cultures are losing their sense of place because of climate change and loss of ancestral homeland, land rights and destruction of sacred places.’
