"When looking at the issue of poverty, it is easy to dehumanize the voices of those walking that 
very experience. But as we see in 'StreetsmARTs,' they have the best insights into solutions."
Kelly McRell

For more than a year, participants who have experienced homelessness met weekly to tell their stories and to create this stage and film documentary. The resulting performance combines live theatre and documentary video, as well as still photography by the participants, and is a revealing and authentic look at life on the street with those who have lived it
