Unseen: the hidden stories of women and homelessness

When

Every day, 8:30am to 6:30pm Monday 14 June to Saturday 19 June

Special events at the UNSEEN Chrome Car.

Bring your shoes and story to UNSEEN Participant Fiona, our artist in residence for the month of June who is creating an installation called "Walk in my shoes". All are invited to participate and share their life experiences.

"Walk a mile in my shoes" 

The shoes are a snap-shot of portraits of women's lives and written stories. They represent different intersections of life, some confronting homelessness, abuse, addiction, mental illness, disability, poverty, sexuality, aging, racism, domestic violence, loss, unemployment and seeking asylum. 

The shoes represent the women in our communities who fight so hard advocating for change, human rights and social justice. These stories are often not heard and go unseen. The visual impact of 'Walk a mile in my shoes' enables the inclusion of many women's stories to be told and collectivity seen.
