Grey Areas is a collaborative piece of work commissioned by Bristol Photofestival and  The Arnolfini, supported by Golden Key. 

5 individuals  with complex needs who have past and present experience of the homeless pathway have create a body of work that explores ideas around housing and wellbeing. 

We have explored key questions and priorities through themes of home and wellbeing. How do we see people in the homeless community within Bristol and therefore, how do “we” respond to “them”? How do those in the pathway see themselves? How do those within the pathway relate to ideas of home, on a domestic level and potentially on a wider city scale?’

The work is currently exhibited at The Arnolfini (and accessible online platforms).

This original body of work has been produced during Blueprint: Housing & Wellbeing, an artistic commission by Arnolfini and Bristol Photo Festival in collaboration with Golden Key Partnership supported by ArtFund and the Arts Council England.
