This paper investigates societal change and place. Through art practices in a suburban space where change can reframe the landscape with new meanings and understandings, we explore ways of working with new pictorial possibilities, utilising new media and digital technologies to research the relationships that give meaning to social space and human connections. We will look at the role of art in creating new ways to visualise the world, and develop pathways for social transformation. We will also look at the images that primary school children create of their families and communities in suburban Melbourne through the work shown at Sunshine Everywhere Children’s Gallery. In representing their lives these children portray their relationship to place, which shows the distinctive ethnic diversity within the western suburbs of Melbourne.
