Hollywood Homeless
5  – 7 March 2010

Private View: Friday 5 March 2010 from 16.00 onwards, Performance at 17.00.
Hollywood is about image and perception, the roles that we play in life …. just like in a movie! Urban Strawberry Lunch, working out of the ruins of St Luke’s Church have been working in collaboration with photography group FAB Collective and over 60 homeless people to produce original music and photographs forming the basis of this multimedia performance and exhibition. Exhibition and performances 6 & 7 March.

Finding a voice through artistic expression can alter self image, inspiring self confidence and personal success. Becoming a producer rather than a consumer can provoke profound insights for anyone who dares to create. We hope you will come along and see what has been produced through the Hollywood Homeless project.
