Food for Thought: Homelessness in Brattleboro

May 26, Tuesday, 5:30 p.m.

UPDATE 3/31/20: This event has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule. We apologize for any inconvenience.

BMAC and Groundworks Collaborative invite one and all to a casual supper and community conversation at which staff of Groundworks and others involved in addressing homelessness in Brattleboro will be on hand to share information and answer questions. The presenters will endeavor to shed light on what homelessness looks like in Brattleboro: Who is homeless? What are the trends over time? What resources are available? What’s needed to improve the situation? Where does Groundworks fit in?

This event is presented in conjunction with two exhibits related to homelessness, Steven Kinder: 522,830 and Coffee & Conversation: Stories of Homelessness, both on view through June 14. 

Taking its name from the number of people who were unsheltered in America in 2018, 522,830 features portraits of people experiencing homelessness whom Kinder has met over the years in New York City. 

Brattleboro artist Liz Lavorgna began working on Coffee & Conversation in 2015, in collaboration with filmmaker Wyatt Andrews and with support from Groundworks Collaborative. For this exhibit, LaVorgna revisits the project. 

ADMISSION: By donation, with proceeds going to Groundworks Collaborative.
