Love for The Streets Using Music Art And Culture To Tackle Homelessness

Love for the Streets (LFTS) is hosting a party for a purpose Sunday 23rd September at Hidden nightclub for their next event ‘Hidden Behind the Headlines’.

The all-day festival will bring together a combination of music, food and fashion stalls, live art and creative workshops. This event will mark the launch of their campaign raising awareness about ‘Hidden Homelessness’.

Mainstream media often depicts homelessness as affecting those only we see on the streets, meaning the rest aren’t able to get the support they need. This campaign raises awareness about sofa-surfing families, people hidden in temporary housing, and short-term accommodation, who make up 64% of homelessness.

Organised by a passionate group of students and ex-students, club promoters and artists, LFTS helps Manchester’s community bring social issues to the surface in an engaging environment.

Eleanor Watts, Chair of Big Change MCR said they ‘are forever grateful for the events [LFTS] hold, they are both professionally done and raise money for our work with over 30 charities in the city of Manchester.’

LFTS are also collaborating with local charities who support hidden homelessness, such as Women’s Direct Access Centre, to direct new volunteers to their services and fundraise for them.

Commenting on social media about LFTS setting up an all-day festival to help tackle Hidden Homelessness, Sacha Lord, the founder of Warehouse Project and Parklife and said this was a ‘fantastic achievement!’.
