This is an interesting project; youth homelessness charity Depaul UK has launched an awareness campaign involving a group of graffiti artists who will create street art to tell young peoples’ stories.

The project is part of the ‘Don’t Let Their Stories End on The Streets’ campaign, created by Publicis. The artworks will show the factors that led up to homelessness for the young people interviewed in the project.

The featured artists are Ben Slow, David Shillinglaw, Best Ever, Josh Jeavons and Jim McElvany. The work will appear as murals located in Dalston and Shoreditch in East London.

Members of the public can get involved by visiting this website and buying a section of a ‘digital wall’.
