Opportunity to research arts and homelessness projects in Latin America, Africa, Asia and Oceania as part of a programme to develop a hive and hubs network

From 2021, Arts & Homelessness International (AHI), in partnership with British Council and Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation are running a five-year project to develop an arts and homelessness hives and hubs network across Latin America, Africa, Asia and Oceania. The project aims to create hubs around the world that will connect projects and individuals to share practice and together act as a vehicle for power and knowledge-sharing. This five-year project builds on AHI's work through the four year period 2016-2020, during which AHI became a full-time movement, and the network of arts and homelessness projects grew from 100 to 400 projects.

As part of phase one, AHI is looking for a researcher or a small group of researchers who can dedicate a considerable amount of time over the next few months. You will contribute to the project by researching and mapping global arts and homelessness projects, practitioners and ecosystems, and making recommendations on fostering relationships to inform the set-up of pilot hubs.
