I’m too old to want to rent 
a room in someone else’s house.”

PETER

“I’m originally from Argentina, and came to Australia in 1971. I left my country because it was impossible to have a decent life there and I wanted to give my son a decent education.”

“I was renting rooms and every 2 or 3 months the owner would say I need the room whatever the reason so in 6 months I had to move 4 times. I was just getting tired of moving from place to place.”

“I call myself an artist because I am. The majority of times I was living in these cheap rooms, I didn’t feel comfortable but now that I’m here my colleagues come and visit me, I have private students here too, so here allows me to do a lot of things I couldn’t do when I was just renting a room.”

“I care about the place that I live because it gives me an opportunity to live a decent life.”
