About the project
To celebrate National Tell Your Story Day, Natasha Borton, Iolanda Viega, and volunteers worked with members of the homeless community to tell their own stories. In poetry, prose, recording and film we explored the journey some members of the community have taken to where they are today. Over lunch we spoke about street homelessness, temporary accommodation and substance misuse as well as the process of recovery with some volunteers who have experienced homelessness themselves. We explored some of the opinions in the wider community about homelessness and how close – or how far – they are from the truth.
