Multiple and Complex Needs is a term regularly used across the housing and homelessness sector. Are we clear what this actually means? How broad is this definition? Importantly, how do people feel about being identified as having multiple and complex needs?
This event is designed to address some of these questions; not by creating a narrow and exclusive label, but by highlighting the very varied experiences which can leave people excluded from society AND services. These are human rights issues and this exhibition aims to demonstrate how people are being denied their basic human rights, and highlight the ingrained structural and societal inequalities.
Bringing together people with diverse life experiences and powerful stories to tell, Inspiring Change Manchester has been working with the wider Manchester community to develop an exhibition around what ‘multiple disadvantage’ is and means in people’s lives. People do not see this as a label to describe themselves, but as a statement about how they are treated within the systems which should be there to support them.
Bringing together an eclectic collection of arts and creativity, See The Full Picture is an event designed to both challenge and engage, to show the ups and downs of life, and encourage visitors and artists themselves to link up, talk and increase awareness and understanding about life and challenges in Manchester.
The event will see a collaboration between support services in Manchester, including:
Back on Track
Greater Manchester Women Support Alliance
Women Asylum Seekers Together
This event is part of a national campaign for Multiple Disadvantage Day led by the 12 Fulfilling Lives Projects funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Matt on 07468 751006
