There is a misconception in our current culture today that all homeless people are alcoholics or drug users, with no understanding of the real reason for them being in that situation. This event will explore the language surrounding homelessness.

“What I’d say is just give them respect, look them in the eyes, just say alright; you don’t have to give them money, you don’t have to give them anything, look at them like they’re a human being. Acknowledge them, don’t just brush them off or just look at them like they’re nothing because that can hurt you know.”  Harry, homeless 3 years.

At this event there will be an exhibition of photographic images by Ceridwen Hughes of Same but Different, a panel of invited guests who will discuss their experience of homelessness (either directly or through their work) who will address the language of homelessness.

This event has been curated in partnership with Same but Different uses – an organisation which uses the arts for positive social change by working in partnership with organisations, communities and individuals to highlight inequalities and bring communities closer together.
