Event Description:

Exhibit: Nov. 4-11
Saturday hours: 11am-3pm
Monday thru Friday hours: 9am-6pm

Powerful, museum-like art experience filled with educational vignettes and audio/video stories from individuals experiencing homelessness in Indy. 

Power can be both negative and positive. The power of negative stereotypes shapes one’s understanding of homelessness and obscures what homelessness actually looks like. Thankfully, the positive power of art and storytelling can reshape those stereotypes. 

Combining audio, video, and tactile components, Homeless Voices immerses the visitor in the lives of individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Indianapolis. Stations include personal videos of individuals sharing their stories, replicated structures found in homeless camps, and other interactive/educational opportunities. Visitors will also learn about the crisis of homelessness in our community and how they can get involved.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs encouraged weeklong

Presented by Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention (CHIP), Big Car, Indianapolis Continuum of Care (Community Education & Public Policy Committee), and CHIP Young Professionals Group.
