‘ARTICLE 25’

The universal declaration of human rights

Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

The ARTicle 25 project – the key element of Art In The City 2019 – will explore by means of art , poetry, video and sculpture the meaning of homelessness and try and find a definition of what is a home amongst a diverse cross section of people in Gloucester

We will be working with a school group, a homeless charity, a group helping refugees and asylum seekers and two art based charities working with the disabled and with people with physical and emotional problems.

We will produce a group installation artwork representing the 4000 families in temporary accommodation this year in Gloucester and an exhibition of the work produced by our various groups to be shown during Art in the City at Eastgate Shopping Centre.
