: “Nudity in the art is acceptable, so long as it is not explicit, and the tone keeps with the themes of empowerment.”

Alex said the term is “people experiencing homelessness or who have experienced homelessness.”

Alex Dalbey-Thomas’s quote: “access to nature is a vital part of trauma-informed care, and recovering from trauma. The cultural move to prioritize access to nature for people in recovery is social justice!”

Other notes: art delivery May 1st 3-7 at 2265 Hillcrest Ave 55116

$200 for a one hour class taught, not until fall.

Consensus: Digital prints are considered if main media of artist, or they are originally made for this project, and would be worth at least $300 if sold at another venue.
