Homeless people use public spaces as shelter for 24 hours a day. For the rest of the population, we are also in some regards homeless for a couple of hours a day. When this happens, we use public spaces as shelter. When it rains for example, we use bus shelters to make sure we don’t get drenched. This campaign shows the public two things:
- What it feels like to have your taken for granted shelter taken away.
- What it feels like to be under shelter but have someone urinate on you unexpectedly-something homeless people regularly experience.
Vandalism of public spaces for a good cause is likely to get press as well as spread on social media as people complain about getting wet when they weren’t expecting to.
