Faces Between Places was a multi-arts project involving homeless people, rough sleepers and frequenters of Oxford Night Shelter. The project was part of Faces of Oxfordshire, a county-wide venture that celebrated the present community and history of Oxfordshire.
Local photographer Ed Hart led a series of photography sessions to enable participants to take their own pictures and capture their unique ‘fringe’ perspective of living in Oxfordshire. The participants’ photographs were then exhibited in the Shelter Tent at the In-Tent-City outdoor exhibition in South Park.
Following on from this, participants were given the opportunity to compose a musical score, using a range of instruments and computer software, that would accompany their images. Their music was played at the Shelter Tent Photography exhibition, which was displayed at the Woodstock Museum in 2007 as part of the celebrations with Faces of Oxfordshire.
For this project, Fusion Arts partnered with The Gap and Oxford Night Shelter, as well as other Oxfordshire-based organisations.
