Nochlezhka shows to the city the "Homeless houses"
One-day action in St. Petersburg in honor of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty
“In the underground vault of this house in 2009-2010 lived Petrov Ivan - a former Russian language teacher"," In the attic of this house in 2005-2007 lived Sevastyanova Margarita – a pediatrician – in the past" — stylized tablets with similar texts appeared in different districts of the city. All of the tablets were made of cardboard, which is habitually associated with the life of the homeless people, and glued with safe double-sided tape that will not damage the surface of buildings. The project based on real stories of the people who turned to Nochlezhka org. for help in different years.
The action is timed to the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, which is celebrates annually on October 17 all around the world. We are living in the world where everyone can find themselves on the street one day. Ourselves, our friends, our relatives. You can reduce away these thoughts, you can try not to notice people living on the streets. They try not to catch our eye by themselves. But next to our world of apartments, there is an inner world of attics, underground vaults, and dugouts, dug in railroad embankments. We want to make this world and the people living in this inner world - visible.
Nochlezhka demonstrates to the city "Homeless houses" - volunteers of the organization hung up on the residential buildings of the city 100 tablets, that tell about homeless people who in different years lived on the streets of St. Petersburg.
