Coming Together - Homeless Women, Housing, and Social Support

Home

Welcome to the Coming Together Project! Coming Together is an arts-based community research project exploring how women and transwomen who are marginally housed build support networks with each other in order to survive. The research team collected interview data, and identified key themes that were then explored in the art making process with other women/transwomen at drop-in centres across the city of Toronto. Through painting, drama and photography women/transwomen depicted their visions and stories of inclusion, friendship and safe spaces.

This project was led by Professor Izumi Sakamoto from the University of Toronto Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work and Josie Ricciardi from Regent Park Community Health Centre. The project partners included Sistering – A Woman’s Place.

Funding was provided by the Wellesley Institute, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Institutional Grant, and the University of Toronto, Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work Royal Bank Fellowship.

We would especially like to thank the Wellesley Institute for their generous contribution to this project.
