Art Expo

INSTALLATION & MARKETPLACE

The Art Expo is a chance to reflect on the housing crisis from new perspectives, to be inspired by the art and the stories of the artists who create it, and explore themes touching on homelessness, mental health, addictions, dealing with or overcoming stigma, and resilience and healing.

Many of the artists in our art show have experienced housing insecurity or homelessness, are vulnerable to mental illness, or have struggled with addictions. Others have cognitive or developmental disabilities that make it challenging to integrate into mainstream society. All use art to express themselves, whether through painting, drawing, photography, carving, pottery, glasswork, or other media. View the art installations throughout the conference, and be sure to check out the marketplace on Tuesday, November 19 to see artworks available for purchase.
