Q: poem by sola owonibi .homeless not hopeless
A: Immediately after returning from touring around Europe this past summer I decided to move from California to Portland, Oregon. [ Being that I create and install my artworks in the streets I am constantly searching and observing street situations to build with and incorporate into my artworks. What I noticed upon my arrival to Portland less than 3-months ago was the abnormally large amount
of homeless people sleeping on sidewalks, and under the bridges. It?s impossible to not notice the overwhelming homeless population here in Portland, Oregon. Oregon has the highest proportion of homeless people in the nation, according to a new report on homelessness issued by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. As if this was not enough the un-employment in the state of Oregon is at 11.5% and ranks 4th worse in the United States. I wanted to address and draw more attention to the homeless crisis here in Portland (and across the nation in general). I wanted to learn more about this homeless epidemic by listening directly to the homeless community on an individual person to person level. During the month of November I rode my bike around Portland wanting to listen to homeless individuals that wanted to share their story and suggestions on what shelters really help out with services as well as where I should donate the money fund raised from this print. The majority of the homeless individuals I listened to spoke very highly about ?T.P.I? (TRANSITION PROJECTS) and how T.P.I. helps them with shelter, hygienic supplies, clothes and supportive programs to help them transition off the streets. After last years positively large response to the ?GIVING TO THE POOR? print where 100% of all those profits were donated to 2 selected homeless shelters I wanted to again get involved this year with the homeless community and address the serious issues of homelessness and more specific the homeless situation in Portland, Oregon. I learned a lot of information during the 5-weeks I rode my bike around Portland listening to different homeless individuals stories. ]
