We the People is a collaborative project situated within the small community groups that populate the inner-city neighbourhood of Darlington. These unique organisations are spaces of leisure – of song, language, food and ideas – and give us an insight into the small histories and sweeping changes that tie this suburb together. We The People examines the social fabric that creates a neighborhood and scratches the surface of a place in flux.

Throughout the year, contemporary artists have undertaken residencies with these groups: meeting, learning and talking with their members to create new installations and performances that are of and about these distinct communities. Over the first weekend of Liveworks we invite you to collect a map from Carriageworks and walk the streets of our suburb to discover the ideas and ideals that make up this diverse neighbourhood.
