An Open House Plus Story. People living in temporary accommodation talk about how they used to label the people living in hostels. Since they have found themselves without a secure place to live their views have changed.

4thWorld is a project that produces films in collaboration with people find themselves without a secure place to live. The aim is to support people to share their stories in order to affect change in their lives.

There are constant spotlights focused on these communities and it’s rarely the case they are able represent themselves and their experiences. It is generally agreed amongst change makers that in order to lead change, they need to understand often-complex problems from the perspective of those affected by them; their decisions need to be informed by the people who require the change if the change is to be sustainable.

4thWorld@Doncaster was a video magazine project supporting people living in temporary accommodation to reflect on their experiences, their skills, their barriers and goals, in order to increase motivation towards employment. They worked with a filmmaker on all aspects of producing their film, which they shared with decision makers and change makers in their local area.
