Homelessness: The Voices of the Unheard Series continues Monday, August 21st

What are the stories of our community's homeless? What do we know about homelessness? What actions can we take to support community members who may be experiencing homelessness?

To explore these questions, Neill Public Library partners with facilitator and WSU graduate student Nancy Carvajal Medina to host three workshops to dig below the surface of homelessness in our community. Carvajal Medina brings assumptions, beliefs, values, cultural heritages, traditions, and prejudices from non-homeless worlds into dialogue with the worlds of men and women who have experienced homelessness.

In each workshop, stories of homeless individuals collected over three years as part of a doctoral research project will be shared. Attendees will participate in interactive exercises to designed to share insights and knowledge about homelessness, to learn from the lived experiences of different individuals, to use arts (creative writing, drawing, painting) to respond to those experiences, and to discuss actions we can take as a community to support these "houseless" individuals.

Participants will develop new understandings on the houseless experiences by exploring our worlds, developing empathetic listening, dialoguing critically, creating, and acting from the positions we occupy in the community.​​Each workshop is different; participants may attend one, or all, of the series. Workshops are free.

Dates: Mondays: August 14, 21, 28
Place: Hecht Meeting Room

Time: 5:30 - 7:00 pm
