"UNSHELTERED": the zine

Samantha Floren, BSW post-degree student, worked on a zine project throughout Summer 2021 and we are proud to share it with you!

Sep 24, 2021

"UNSHELTERED": the zine is a zine composed of art from chronically unhoused women and gender-diverse folks who do not access Hamilton's shelter system.

From the zine: 

UNSHELTERED features art from folks who currently and/or previously sleep rough, live in encampments, or access YWCA's Transitional Living Program (TLP), Carole Anne's Place (CAP),and/or Willow's Place (WP).

Each artist was asked to create a piece of art that represents their experience being unhoused in Hamilton. They were provided with art supplies and an
honorarium for their contribution which included $30 in gift cards, self-care supplies, snacks, and other supplies.

Please visit the link to access the zine.
