Raine Square exhibition working to break the stigma of homelessness.
Raine Square has partnered with UneARThed to bring you the Gratitude Gallery, an artistic showcase of works by five local creatives who have lived experience of homelessness.
Uniting is delighted to be the beneficiary of this project, with a $1 donation for every QR code scanned at the exhibition.
The mission of the showcase is to create passion without prejudice by sharing the unique perspectives of those who have lived experience of homelessness.
Each artwork is accompanied by an artist biography and the story behind the work to create a deeper understanding of the piece and the creator’s journey.
With the current housing crisis leaving up to 900 people in Perth experiencing homelessness each night, it is now more important than ever to raise awareness of the stories and challenges of people in these communities.
Michael Chester, Interim co-CEO of Uniting WA said,
“The partnership between Uniting WA, Raine Square and UneARThed is a wonderful example of the power of creativity, innovation and collaboration to create a more inclusive society, where individuals and communities are more valued and connected.”
The money donated to Uniting WA will help to fund homelessness support services, including the Tranby Engagement hub, transitional accommodation programs and homeless outreach.
The Gratitude Gallery will run from 13 January – 6 February at Raine Square in Perth City.
