International Arts and Homelessness Summit and Festival

This Summit & Festival (12 – 18 November) was a chance to celebrate the work of artists from around the world. It showed how artists, the homeless and cultural sectors and policy makers are using arts to amplify the voice of people who are or have been homeless, create positive awareness, and build well-being and social inclusion.

Within the Festival there was a Summit at The Whitworth (15-16 November) where 250 delegates from 15 countries gathered to share practice and policy about arts and homelessness. 50% of the Summit delegate places were free for people who are or have been homeless.
