About the Event
There is often a daunting and false perception that comes with homelessness. When you think of this challenge, what and who comes to mind? Would you think working mother, struggling adolescent, college student, a returning veteran, or recent divorcee? As we come to better understand and empathize with our fellow peers, how might we use a collection of stories to change the narrative of homelessness and inspire change?
CoAct is looking for an answer to this question through the design of an online art gallery and story sharing space. These digital environments will be the tools for youth and college students experiencing homelessness to develop and curate their stories. Through the lived experiences that we share, we hope to build a better understanding of homelessness, empower those that are effected, and incite action.
