Share a Life – Katherine Holmes

Saturday 1 Feb – Friday 6 March 2020

The Project:

Telling a story to encourage conversation through a collection of portraits to engage the community in breaking down barriers of homelessness in Cardiff. We are interested in engaging with the spectrum of homelessness within Cardiff city to hear personal stories so our artist Katherine can bring personality and character into customised portraits. By displaying these stories and portraits across the city, we aim to promote and encourage positive interaction and break down the stigma with the homeless community and the public. Our pop-up exhibitions will be throughout the next 18 months, and a final exhibition with monologues will feature in 2020.

Through this project, we would like to raise a positive profile of those experiencing homelessness to develop understanding and offering an opportunity for connection across the city.

How to get involved:

• Book a pop-up exhibition for your event

• Sponsor a Story (

• Follow on social media and join in the conversation
