“FlatMates was collated as a response to the 9-tower lockdown of 2020 in North Melbourne and Flemington.
FlatMates aims to not dwell on the emotional and psychological stress that resonated with the residents of the towers, but to shine a light on the strength and resilience of the community.”
FlatMates by Khalid Farah is created for Shelter 2.
Shelter 2 is proudly supported by VicHealth, Creative Victoria, City of Melbourne and Australia Council for the Arts.

Over the past seven months many artists and residents within the nine towers have been busy creating new digital works for Shelter 2 – a second edition of MAV’s innovative commissions program responding to the unique challenges presented by COVID-19 for culturally diverse artists and communities.
