Barcelona Social Inclusion, Empower 2500 Homeless

The Barcelona Social Inclusion project will help to build a better future for the housed and homeless citizens of Barcelona, through awareness, empowerment, and inclusion. The Barcelona Social Inclusion project will highlight the causes and consequences of homelessness, and guide outreach and informational activities, which will also assist the homeless to become socially engaged. Chosen, in June 2010, by the prestigious World Bank Institute and Urgent Evoke program for social innovators and entrepreneurs, the Barcelona Social Inclusion project has, in one month, continued the work of its Project Director, interviewing and documenting the Homeless and others in Barcelona, creating video, photographic, and other documentation of the plight of the Homeless, in their own words and realities. Networking with students, citizens, organizations, and, of course, family and friends, the founder/Director of the Barcelona Social Inclusion project has gathered an active and inspired group of volunteers and supporters. To keep friends and supporters informed, Barcelona Social Inclusion has begun several web pages, including facebook, vimeo, and twitter.

    H I know a lot of homeless and depressed people who are invisible or would like to be. This project will be a great approach beyond the basic need of food and shelter but rather to their well-being and belonging. Best of luck!

    Jonathan Minchin What a great idea and project! I would like to mirror the sentiment made by Turil and I also agree that publicity through the means of installation can become a way to bring many different social groups together. A visible construction that adapts and uses existing spaces for productive activities can help to raise... Read more »
