'A Home for Everyone' Campaign

 

Every night, thousands of Victorians are forced to sleep rough. We urgently need more social and public housing and hope to influence Victorian Government policy by creating origami houses for collective display. We aim to make 7000 origami houses - that's how many are needed every year for the next 10 years to eradicate homelessness.

Creating origami houses is a engaging activity with the potential to involve a wide range of people and groups. This is a great opportunity to raise awareness, discuss and educate our communities on homelessness in Victoria. 

At the end of the campaign, the origami houses will be used to make a vibrant art installation which will go on a travelling show!

Campaign materials

Everything you need to know about the campaign, including origami instructions can be downloaded here.

We've also created a 'School's Pack' with the help of two Victorian primary school teachers. This pack is designed to assist teachers by providing information about the campaign, a sample lesson plan, and educational material about housing and homelessness that teachers can adapt to share with their students. 

Download the school pack here.
