ABOUT THE EXPOSURE PROJECT


The Exposure Project is an initiative that aims to create an online and community platform where individuals with lived experiences of poverty and homelessness are provided the space to share their stories.

The objective is to highlight the voices of individuals with lived experience, raise awareness of the realities that low-income individuals experience, and help break the stigma associated with poverty and homelessness.

Our intention is to work in collaboration with individuals and create meaningful relationships. Through storytelling photography, our hope is to inspire more empathy and understanding for individuals with lived experience and inspire the wider community to strive for change.
