Homeless artists exhibit artwork in Birmingham City Centre
Homeless and vulnerably housed artists are showcasing their work at an exhibition run by Crisis Skylight Birmingham.
The free exhibition opened with the private view on Friday 4 August and will run until Friday 31 August at St Martin’s Church on Edgbaston Street.
The exhibition is divided into three sections; sculptures and stone carvings, photographs and photo-edited images and painting and drawing.
All the pieces on display have been produced by homeless and vulnerably housed people who attend art classes at Crisis Skylight Birmingham.
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.”
