Arts Festival

Anjali writes:

While perusing the latest edition of "Big Issue" I came across an article about a Festival for the homeless the "Ten Feet Away Festival":

It is a festival of a wide variety of events featuring many means of creative expression by homeless people such as workshops in music, opera and theatre. There will be paintings and poetry, etc. The reason I was particularly interested is because Cardboard Ctizens Theatre Company will be performing "King" - a novel about a community of homeless people in France by John Berger. I thoroughly enjoyed his book "A Fortunate Man" so i thought this might be of interest.

They'll also be screening "The Man Without A Past" by the Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki and an evening of opera and caberet from Street Wise Opera and the People Show All Stars.

The festival is on until 31 July.
