During April 2015, in collaboration with Streetwise Opera and People's Palace Projects we hosted a group of visitors all the way from Brazil as part of With One Voice, an initiative to celebrate the importance of supporting homeless people through the arts.
Amanda Croome, our CEO, will join a group travelling to Brazil in November, including Pete Churchill from Choir with No Name; Terry O’Leary of Cardboard Citizens; Paula Lonegan of Crisis Skylight; Paul Ryan of Café Art; Beth Knowles, a Labour councillor involved in homelessness, and someone with experience of being homeless in Manchester. They hope to pilot the Homeless People’s Movement in Manchester which could have significant ramifications for homelessness policy in the UK.

With One Voice 2014-16 is produced by Streetwise Opera in partnership with People’s Palace Projects and is supported by Arts Council England, British Council Brazil (as part of Transform), and the Calouste Gulbenkian UK Foundation.
