Art in Crisis is a national programme of public events presenting compelling, original artwork made by artists experiencing homelessness.
Throughout 2017, Crisis marked its 50th year to consider how we can look to a future where homelessness is ended. Art in Crisis therefore considered the proposition ‘What If’ through the eyes of our members, with pieces examining the past, considering the present and looking to the future. The public events in July 2017 marked the culmination of a three-month project. Across all 11 Crisis centres, Crisis members have worked with a professional artist to produce a public exhibition.
During the project I collaborated with Crisis members at four homeless hostels in Merseyside, to explore their responses to ‘What If’. This led them to examine their own places and stories, or looked to the world beyond them.
Their photograhic work was exhibited at the Museum of Liverpool.
