Project: Home Is Not One Story: Exploring the heart of homelessness
This public art project brings stories from Home is Not One Story onto the sidewalk. The Town of Chapel Hill and the NCSU School of Design Media Lab collaborated with Hidden Voices to create short animations from first-person recorded and transcribed narratives. The animations offer a glimpse into our collective experiences of home, with stories from veterans, foster youth, those escaping violence and war, and many others.
The Block Gallery is located on the first and second floors of the lobby of the Avery C. Upchurch Municipal Building (aka City Hall, 222 West Hargett St., Raleigh 27601). At 6pm, the reception will feature performances by former Hidden Voices project participants Kate Brodie, Cecilia Hernaine de Davis, Jennifer Evans, Teri Hairston, Vimala Rajendran, Crystal Reaves, and Rremida Shkoza.
Block2 features films created by local video artists and community collaborations, curated by Neill Prewitt. Videos air from dusk to 3am in the window of Urban Design Center at 133 Fayetteville Street, Raleigh.
