The Existence Project

The Existence Project began on the assertion that personal narratives have the power to connect individuals across socioeconomic boundaries, and that the rich creative ability of our community is the most effective tool we can wield against the stigma that prevents necessary social change.

Starting in 2016 with homemade interviews of people living on the streets of Victoria, the project has evolved into creating accessible multi-media projects, capacity building initiatives for the unhoused, and intersectional community events that centre the voices of people with lived experience of homelessness, all with the broad goal of humanizing homelessness.

Everybody has a story, and we believe that story is the key towards building connection, dignity and belonging for everyone, no matter their race, background or socioeconomic status.
