This November, international campaign movement With One Voice is holding the first ever International Arts and Homelessness Summit and Festival. The events are based on the acknowledgement that homelessness is not just about housing and practical ‘house-lessness’, and look to investigate how the arts are being used effectively around the world to reduce social isolation by building social networks and increasing both physical and mental health, improving public attitudes/promoting understanding towards people who are or have been homeless, and enabling homeless people to express themselves so their voice can be heard.
There is nothing linear about femininity - or what it means to be a woman - in the 21st century. Sex and gender are not limited to the monolithic paradigm of genetics; they are informed by something intangible, and it this essence of the female paradox that makes Allie's work as relevant as it is important and sets her apart form others in her field.
