‘Faces Between Places’ was a multi-arts project working with homeless people, rough sleepers, and users of Oxford Night Shelter as part of ‘Faces of Oxfordshire’, a county-wide venture celebrating the present community and history of Oxfordshire.
Local photographer Ed Hart led a series of photography sessions to enable participants to take their own pictures, capturing their unique perspective of living in Oxfordshire from the fringes. The participants’ photographs were exhibited in the Shelter Tent at the In-Tent-City outdoor exhibition in South Park.
Following on from this series, participants were given the opportunity to compose a music score using a range of instruments and computer software. Their music was used to accompany the Shelter Tent Photography exhibition, which was shown at Woodstock Museum as part of the ‘Faces of Oxfordshire’ celebration in 2007.
Fusion Arts joined in partnership with The Gap and Oxford Night Shelter among other Oxfordshire-based organisations for this project.
