Homelessness committee hosts celebration

Everyone in the community is invited to enjoy this inclusive and all-ages event.

On October 11, the Nelson Committee on Homelessness will present Poverty Unplugged: An Acoustic Evening. It is a celebration that will recognize those who survive in poverty and homelessness; those who work in the field, those who generously donate their time and energy, and all those who aspire to make a difference.

Organizers are currently seeking musicians, poets, storytellers, writers, artists and community members to share their gifts on the theme of homelessness and poverty. Nelson’s own Gerald Beaudry aka Mr. Aardvark will host the evening and perform original music.

Do you have a song to share? Do you have a story, a quote that inspires you, or any other creative statement? The possibilities are open. Your voice is important, come on down and bring it. Contact Katie at ncoh@nelsoncares.ca to be added to the evening’s line up.

Everyone in the community is invited to enjoy this inclusive and all-ages event. Light refreshments will be provided.

Poverty Unplugged: An Acoustic Evening takes place October 11 at SelfDesign High from 7 to 9 p.m. It is presented as part of Homelessness Action Week 2012, which runs from October 7 to 13 in our community.

For more information call 250-352-6011 ext. 19 or visit Nelson Committee on Homelessness on Facebook.
