Raising awareness about homelessness through community theatre.
For Homelessness Action Week 2014, RainCity Housing partnered with the City of Vancouver, the Community Arts Council of Vancouver and local artist, actress and director Luisa Jojic on an exciting theatre project to stimulate dialogue and new understandings around issues of homelessness. Under Jojic’s direction and guidance, a diverse group of participants developed an original script together, using Shakespearean text as a foundation for addressing issues related to home, community, identity and belonging. A group of folks who were at the time vulnerably housed, formerly homeless or homeless, and those with a higher income and have housing joined forces in order to create, produce and act in ‘Much Ado about Something’! http://www.raincityhousing.org/
