I’ve been commissioned by the homeless charity Crisis to deliver a 10 week project on the theme of What If? with participants with experience of homelessness and mental health difficulties. The workshops will result in an outdoor exhibition in south London (Croydon) for the annual Art in Crisis exhibitions taking place all across the country. I’m looking forward to working with this vital charity to help their beneficiaries to tell their stories through powerful and engaging photography.
In July 2017 Art in Crisis will consider past, present and future through the theme What If? This body of artistic work, produced across all 11 Crisis Skylights, will accompany the facts and figures research published by Crisis into homelessness for the 50th anniversary. When looking into the many ways we can come together to end homelessness, we must also consider what if we did nothing? In the 50 years that have elapsed since Crisis was formed as an urgent response to an unacceptable situation, we consider our past, this present, the future to come and our place within it. At this moment of intersection we speculate What If?, working with art and imagination, coming together to end homelessness by reaching more people through varied mediums, messages and ideas.
