ON THE STREETS

ON THE STREETS is a National Lottery funded project created/led by Aaron Hussain, produced by Ellie Chadwick, and developed at Watershed Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol, UK, in association with St Mungo's, that tackles stigma surrounding homelessness through immersive storytelling. True stories of people who have experienced homelessness are told through 360 audiobooks: revealing what it is like to be living on the streets, and telling the stories of how they came to be there. 

Our "binaural box" - a wooden audio-experience cubicle - was due to make way around the streets of Bristol in the summer of 2020, allowing members of the public to step inside and hear stories of people who have had to sleep rough on those very streets. Due to the pandemic, the project is currently being moved online, with the support of Originators Funding from Bristol City Council.
