Group AE EMP:ART

EMPOWERED THROUGH ART. An MSA and With One Voice collaboration. The aim of this collaboration is to integrate people who are or have previously experienced homelessness into the cultural spaces that populate the city through the arts. With one voice is an organisation that believes in giving a voice to the homeless community through this same medium. They organise exchanges between the arts, homeless organisations and policy makers across the world and support new initiatives and projects that are aimed towards similar goals. The event will include design proposals for a variety of cultural sites in the city that will eventually contribute to the production of a downloadable design guide to improve such spaces. // Download Poster

The week-long summit in Manchester was a great opportunity to hear and learn from Global delegates. Each seminar offered a taster of several creative practices which included dance, film and collaborative working.

The Panel for Cultural Spaces' Responses to Homelessness

A multitude of cultural spaces were discussed at the summit, including theatres, concert halls, museums, libraries, art galleries and open spaces. The panels' main focus was that supervisors are made aware of the situation with homeless people in these cultural spaces, and a conversation was started about how this can be achieved. One of the main objectives discussed was the creation of a set of guidelines for new or existing cultural spaces, to make them more accessible and welcoming for people who are or have been homeless. It is this objective that we are going to help with!
