50th anniversary of Crisis launch event

11.04.2017 227 XX

We will be holding a launch event on Thursday 27 April 2017 to mark the 50th anniversary of Crisis.

The event we are holding is called ‘So Me’ and is a public event bringing people together in face-to-face conversation.

The purpose of our event is to:

  • Raise awareness to the general public about what we do.
  • Show homelessness in it’s different forms.
  • Highlight the challenges people face, and solutions to them.

‘So Me’ is modelled on the Human Library. Like a real library visitors borrow a book. The difference is that the books are people, and reading is a conversation.

The general public will choose from a range of books from Crisis members. They will be offered to choose from a range of titles and engage with the people behind the book title.

Date: Thursday 27 April 2017
Time: 11am-2pm
Venue: Spitalfields Market (opposite Patisserie Valerie)
