The mobile bus exhibit, Street Soul: The Human Side of Homelessness, is the result of an intensive collaboration between vendors at Street Sense, who have experienced homelessness first-hand, and artists at The Sanctuaries.
Housed within the traveling I Have a Home Here gallery space — reminiscent of the unstable, constantly-in-motion nature of homelessness — the exhibit weaves the stories of homelessness into visuals of loss, chaos, anxiety, trauma, distrust, waiting, and the ever-present threads of hope. Through this exhibit, which was divided into sections, viewers developed a deeper understanding of what it means to be homeless in this city, as well as concrete ways for them to help end homelessness in DC.
