Art in Crisis is a national programme of public events presenting artwork by artists experiencing homelessness. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it. ‘What If?’ sees the culmination of a three-month project between Crisis clients in Newcastle and local artist, Rob Haliburton, exploring photographic media.

Homelessness can be a devastating experience leaving people without direction. Confidence and motivation often suffer without the security of a home. Throughout 2017, Crisis will mark its 50th year and consider how we can look to a future where homelessness is ended. Art in Crisis therefore considers the proposition ‘What If?’ through the eyes of Crisis clients, with pieces examining the past, considering the present and looking to the future.
