Our artist Dai Owen has been out and about in Chester, talking to some of those people who are without a roof over their heads in the city.
It’s a sad and harsh reality that there are still a number of people in Chester and across the country without a warm bed to curl up in this evening.
Anyway, we felt it important to cover this aspect of life in Chester, alongside our more usual pieces on arts and culture. We care deeply about all of those living and working in Chester and we wish that a day would come when no one ever had to spend the night out in the cold and rain. It was Dai’s idea to go out into the city to speak to and sketch some of our residents whose regular homes are on the streets.
Over to Dai.
Dai Owen says: “Well, I had a go at the idea of drawing some of the folk who live on the streets in Chester. I decided to do six as a set and just let fate guide me to each one – rather than walk around with some fixed idea in advance.
If you are concerned about supporting those who are homeless in our city then you can contact the Share charity or ForFutures.
