  Democracy - Homelessness

Organisation

ANAH

Project Description

A healthy democracy is animated by an informed community who are:
 engaged in the issues affecting daily lives
 create partnerships with people and organisations to address community issues.

In a healthy democracy, civic dialogue plays an essential role. Civic dialogue gives voice to multiple differing points of view. Civic dialogue enables people to develop more complex, humane, and realistic views of issues and each other.

Creativity and the arts can play a pivotal role in civic dialogue.
Creative Democracy - Homelessness is a pilot project and aligned with Council's vision of a creative and inclusive city.

The specific aims of Creative Democracy - Homelessness are to:
 reduce the tolerance in the community, of the growing level of homelessness.
 demonstrate how arts and culture can assist community engagement and creative solutions to difficult social issues
 develop active citizenship and new connections, relationships that lead to new solutions
 explore and evaluate the project, and provide recommendations for future development.

In delivering this project Australian Network for Arts + Health aimed to be:
 inclusive and appropriate in its depiction of homeless people and the issues surrounding homelessness
 respectful of individuals and their circumstance, in that photographs and oral stories will be gathered and utilised with informed consent
 maximise engagement with the greater Brisbane community in order to achieve the stated aims.

The project creative team worked in consultation with 80 organisations involved in service provision to people dealing with homelessness; had contact with approximately 40 service consumers/project participants; a community and council reference group, and a public relations team as well as project partners and sponsors.
