Second Step is absolutely delighted to be involved in the 'Leaving Bristol's streets behind' art exhibition at 11 Christmas Steps. All of the art at the exhibition has been created by a diverse group people who have experienced homelessness in Bristol.

The pictures which range from fine art to abstract represent people’s experiences, thoughts and the work tells their own story.

Simon Holliday, Second Step Team Manager, says that: “Art can be done by everyone. Art promotes self-esteem and confidence as well as giving people the focus to do something creative and meaningful. It is an effective way to further a person’s recovery journey.”

The exhibition will be at 11 Christmas Steps from the 5th to the 7th September.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all the artists that took part and to our Sponsor, Tom White from Clifton Fine Arts.
