This Is Where We Live - Video Stories
Over the spring, summer, and fall of 2020 while COVID restrictions came and went, six people with lived experience of homelessness told their stories in their own words.
Those words formed five-minute monologue scripts, and the original interviewees reviewed the text, and made changes where they wished.
Over the fall of 2021 and winter of 2022 actors rehearsed and recorded those monologues to camera. These stories are what you see below.
