World Homeless Day 2023 Street Art Exhibition

To mark World Homeless Day 2023 we partnered with The White Room Creative Space, Life in Vacant Spaces, Creative Junk, and Telling Lives to put together a Street Art Exhibition featuring artwork created by Housing First Kaewa available for purchase, with profits going back to the artists. The exhibition ran over eight days in the Life in Vacant Spaces Incubator in Cashel Mall, and we were delighted to sell lots of incredible artwork and engage in many important conversations about homelessness.

The exhibition featured on 1News on October 10th - click here to watch the full news story.

World Homeless Day is observed annually on the 10th of October every year, with the aim to shine a light on homelessness issues and spread awareness about the harmful stigmas associated with homelessness.
