In the exhibition, we are looking at different ways people find a sense of belonging. In Victoria, AFL in a great example which brings people from all walks of life together and creates a sense of belonging.
With the 2011 AFL Season kicking off yesterday, once again people on the streets are showing their colours.
Moya pointed out an interesting article in The Age last weekend (20 March 2011) about how AFL football is about to take over television in Melbourne.

Call it a community, call it a tribe, call it an obsession. In a society that’s increasingly fractured, footy brings us together. Riding the train to and from Richmond station you make eye contact with other passengers wearing your team’s colours. You strike up conversations with strangers. At home in front of the box you know that hundreds of thousands of other people like you are leaping out of their chairs – or sinking abjectly into them – with every freakish mark or fluffed disposal. Being an Aussie Rules fan means never being alone.
What about you. What's your club? What colours will you be wearing this weekend?
