On the street: A discussion about Homelessness with the Homeless

#43

After a long stretch of pandemic lockdowns and restrictions in Greece and many other countries, there is a sense that it’s time for people to start going out again. Increasingly, people are filling the streets, meeting outdoors—lawfully, and spending the day away from home.

But what about the people who didn’t have a home in the first place?

At a time marked by a loosening of the restrictions that have kept us inside, the SNF DIALOGUES discussion will focus on the people who have been without an “inside” to stay in, those forced to live life in the streets, go without a home, and find shelter in the corners of cities now starting to come back to life.

In collaboration with the team from Shedia street magazine, the SNF DIALOGUES event will give the floor to five people experiencing homelessness. They will share their experiences, discuss what life is like for them, and their needs, and together will explore the reality that homelessness can happen to anyone—despite society’s illusions to the contrary.

The DIALOGUES are curated and moderated by Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou.
