Home from Home interprets the festival theme of dwelling in unity through the sharing of residents' own private spaces. Eight images that represent eight homes across all corners of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea will be selected and made into a unique set of deckchairs for public use throughout the festival.

Get Involved, Make It Happen

Residents of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea are invited to share photographs to form part of a new artwork. These images will show details of your home - like a lounge or kitchen - that reflect your personality and make it feel your own. Any type of dwelling is welcome, as long as it’s in the borough.
Email up to three images and your contact details including your full name, your full address and postcode, and a contact phone number to
The deadline for submissions is 8 July 2014.

If your photo is selected, you will receive an invitation to a special festival event, have your image printed on a deckchair and can take home your very own deckchair after the festival closes on Sunday 27 July 2014.

Images need to be:

  • Digital, at least 2.5MB size but no larger than 8MB
  • In a portrait format as this will look good on the long and narrow seat of a deckchair.
  • Capture the details that you'd like to show from your home room, aspects that reflect how you've made it feel your own.
  • Taken in daylight and, if possible, avoiding showing posters, album covers or art in the room, unless they are your own works, or you have permission to reproduce them.
