Seeing homelessness in a new way

Metro offered street community friends disposable cameras, creative input, and a place to record their stories. The result is an artistic interpretation where the viewer gains personal insights into the realities of people experiencing homelessness through a museum display and website, according to a Kelowna Museums release.

The public is invited to an opening celebration at the Okanagan Heritage Museum Tuesday, Aug. 29, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. The event will open with remarks from the organizers and some of the project artists, followed by an opportunity to view the installation.
