With One Voice is a new international arts and homelessness movement aiming to connect and strengthen arts and homelessness projects worldwide. They are finding that arts venues, museums, galleries and libraries are particularly important in this field – providing an open-door welcome to homeless people, free use of facilities and creating a bridge for homeless people back into the community. Some of these institutions have firm specific programmes for homeless people and staff to support them, others do the best they can – very few, if any, collaborate with each other to share best practice.
With One Voice is reaching out to institutions across the world to find out what is being done for homeless people; whether there are any good practice or lessons than can be shared more widely. This may lead, in the future, to a set of guidelines or code of practice for institutions working with homeless people.
