Portraits of Homelessness: Multimedia Exhibition and Networking Event

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Pigott Atrium, Seattle University | 901 12th Avenue | Seattle, WA 98122

Network with street paper innovators and experience a powerful multimedia exhibition about homelessness in Washington state.

Later this month, street paper journalists, entrepreneurs and activists from around the world will descend upon Seattle for the Global Street Paper Summit. The summit is run by INSP – a nonprofit that supports 115 street newspapers all over the world, including Seattle’s Real Change. Street papers are independent media that reach a unique worldwide audience of 6 million readers per edition, while helping 14,000 homeless and unemployed vendors to get back on their feet.

This evening event will begin at 7pm, when architect, photojournalist and community activist Rex Hohlbein will introduce his exhibition Homeless in Seattle. His talk will be followed by a drinks reception during which guests will have the opportunity to experience the exhibitions while networking with an audience from street papers, social enterprise and beyond.

The multimedia exhibition will include visual artworks, screenings of the American Refugees animated films, and a StoryCorps “Finding Our Way” listening room hosted by Firesteel.

Purchase tickets for the event by June 22.
