- A theatre-and-video documentary with and about neighbors without homes
- Developed with the participants of the StreetsmARTs theatre project
Director: Steve Umberger Video Production: Jay Thomas Photography: William Guerrant
Team: Lyndall Hare, Ann Huskey, Rebecca Koon, Jinny Mitchell, Mark Sutton
"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."
For more than a year, participants who have experienced homelessness met weekly to tell their stories and to create this authentic look at life on the streets, told by those who have lived it.
The resulting performance combines live theatre and documentary video, as well as still photography by the participants.
