An exhibition of work from homeless and ex homeless artists

About

Crisis uses the arts to help people transform their lives, build confidence, self-esteem and motivation. Individuals making their journeys out of homelessness often take their vital first steps through exploring their creative talents and interests. This exhibition is a combination of past and present members of Crisis Skylight London. Perhaps the ultimate ‘outsider art' event, this exhibition displays thehuf=ge range of talent that exists in those most marginalised in society Alongside Art in Crisis, the exhibition Guests and Volunteers will be on show. This is selection of large scale photographic portraits by Mark Burton. His portraits provide a rare glimpse inside the Crisis Rough Sleepers' Centre in London, which operates during Christmas each year. Cameras are usually banned from the Centre, but as a long-term volunteer Mark was given permission to capture a series of portraits depicting guests and volunteers.
