About the exhibit

Streetlife! is ten works by Kevin Anderson / Waabski Maa'ingan (White Wolf Man).

A celebration of his longest period of safe housing sustained artistic efforts and the pursuit of dreams. Carefully, without blame, he captures real moments of his past as a member of the “Unseen Community” that exists in our city centre. Images of real-life circumstances no one wants to see - very little acknowledge.

I do not want to be remembered as a homeless person - I want to leave my mark on the art community.

Explore empathy toward homelessness

Writing Sample: "Over a prolonged period you can be very uncaring to those around you because of the conviction that the world doesn’t care, a conclusion which I have gotten very close to making.” — Expert of the description writing from “I Exist, Nothing More"

The STREETLIFE! Student Education Package is composed of facts about homelessness in Manitoba accompanied by Kevin Anderson’s series. The prints of his drawings capture a journey through streets, back lanes, and abandoned lots of the downtown core where he lived and survived homelessness for ten years.

There are many different contributing factors that cause someone to become homeless and in many cases, these factors overlap. Homelessness and the other intersecting societal issues are important conversations on social justice to be had in Manitoba classrooms.

The education package provides students with tools to explore their own empathy toward homelessness and related issues. It can also give them the opportunity to consider how art can be used to tell their stories and help them through personal journeys.
