What If: The Distance Between | 14th – 28th July
Art in Crisis is a national programme of public events presenting original artwork made by artists experiencing homelessness. Together, they show that art enables people to relate to the world and examine their place within it.
“Homelessness can be a devastating experience, leaving people without direction. Confidence and motivation often suffer without the security of a home.
Making art can spark a sense of self, producing focus and a clear outlook on the future. Developing a practice builds the self-esteem needed to move into education, volunteering or employment.
Throughout 2017, Crisis will mark its 50th year and consider how we can look to a future where homelessness is ended. Art in Crisis therefore considers the position ‘What If” through the eyes of our clients, with pieces examining the past, considering the present and looking to the future”.
What If: The Distance Between runs from Saturday the 14th – Saturday the 28th of July (Tues – Sat, 11am – 4pm). There will also be an exhibition and zine launch held on Thursday 20th July, 5pm – 8pm which is open to the public.
