On any given night in Brisbane around 300 people sleep in parks, under bridges, in laneways, car parks and abandoned buildings. Join Museum of Brisbane and 612ABC Brisbane for this speaker series event discussing the perception and treatment of homelessness in Brisbane.
Special guests included Brisbane photographer David Kelly and award-winning journalist and filmmaker Trent Dalton, creators of Love Stories, a film which explores true, tragic and beautiful love stories told by members of Brisbane’s homeless community. Guests also included Claire Marchesi board member of Orange Sky Laundry, a not-for-profit organisation providing a platform to positively impact perceptions of homelessness through a free mobile laundry service for homeless communities across Australia. This event formed part of the public programs for the Museum of Brisbane's groundbreaking exhibition 100% Brisbane.
