AN exhibition created by Ripon Museums exploring the causes of homelessness in North Yorkshire is currently touring venues in Harrogate.

The exhibition, called Homeless Not Faceless, features the stories and photographs of ten people who have given their own accounts of being homeless.

It was created by Ripon Museums in partnership with the Harrogate Homeless Project and Ripon YMCA, who have given their support to the clients featured in the exhibition.

Museum staff interviewed the clients to get their stories of homelessness in their own words, whilst photographer Tim Smith took portrait images, or at their request, their shoes or hands.

The exhibition was originally displayed at Ripon Workhouse Museum and now between October and December it will be displayed in Harrogate at St Peter’s Church on Cambridge Road, the Wesley Centre on Oxford Street, Harrogate Library on Victoria Avenue and the Barclays Bank branch on James Street.
