Hello! We have an amazing opportunity for 6 young people (aged between 18-30 years old) for an international project called ‘The Hole in the Sock of Emigration’.The project will focus on root causes of homelessness and the negative stereotypes associated with homelessness.

The 6 young people will be given the opportunity to travel to Poland for 7 days at the end of October (all expenses paid), where they will meet & work with 6 young people from Poland. The learning trip will include meetings with specialists and training around homelessness, filmmaking and photography. The end goal will be to create a documentary film from all the collected interviews, specialist talks and photography from the UK and Poland.

If you are interested in applying or if you know a young person who would be interested in the project, please get them to apply. The deadline date is Friday 19th August 2016. After the deadline date we will schedule interviews with the applicants.
