Art Show April 23 | Unplugged April 28
April 18, 2018
Several local events are being held to support the HousingFest effort which aims to raise awareness and funds to house Charlotte’s most vulnerable chronically homeless individuals. Mert’s Heart & Soul will host a HousingFest Art Show on Monday, April 23, 6:30-7:30pm. The show will feature musically inspired art created by Urban Ministry Center’s ArtWorks 945 studio where the artists have all experienced homelessness.
On Saturday, April 28, 6:00-9:00pm, HousingFest Unplugged will feature Justin Fedor and Reeve Coobs in Triple C Brewing’s new event space, The Barrel Room. A $10 suggested donation at the door and a give-back on beer sales will help raise funds to house our neighbors. The show is presented by UMC’s young professional group, the Urbanites.
Organizer Katie Church says, “last year we added the Unplugged show and loved the opportunity to include more of Charlotte’s community in efforts to end homelessness. We are excited to add these events surrounding the concert to help bring even more awareness and engagement to ending homelessness.”
Other events and supporters have included a show called HousingFest Snugged by Hectorina at Snug Harbor on April 6, and a presence at Tosco Music Party on April 7.
