Crisis artists to exhibit in Birmingham
Crisis Skylight Birmingham will host an art exhibition next month to showcase the work of artists who have experienced homelessness.
The exhibition will run from 4 - 31 August at St Martin’s Church on Edgbaston Street and all the pieces on display have been produced by homeless and vulnerably housed people who have attended art classes through Crisis Skylight’s outreach work in the Midlands.
A Private View will take place on Friday 3 August 6pm-8pm.
The show will divided into three parts, the first containing sculptures and stone carvings, the second containing photographs and photo-edited images and finally a painting and drawing section.
Director of Crisis Skylight Birmingham, Matt Green, said: “For people who have experienced homelessness art can act as an outlet – a chance for a traditionally silent section of society to have its voice heard. We know through experience the positive effect it can have in turning people’s lives around, and the work on display at this exhibition is of extremely high quality.”
