The Homeless Experiences that Inspired Our Harbledown Story : At Catching Lives we have written a story for children based on the experiences of the homeless through the eyes of animals. The choice of the urban fox called Harbledown for the main character, has been central to this. Right from the beginning this was a character that many can relate to and enables them to bring in their own experiences, the ups and downs of homeless life and the emotions and trauma endured by our community.
All of the settings chosen for our story, can relate to and are featured within “A Walk in Our Shoes “ monograph. Urban foxes often wander their own lonely road being maligned and misunderstood.
Harbledown is one of us. “Harbledown Hope” has inspired our community to write and illustrate their ﬁrst book to be published and will be launched on World Homeless Day at the Open Centre on: Tuesday 10th October 2017. 2pm – 4pm and 6.30pm – 8.30pm A wonderful opportunity to meet the writers and illustrators and see the amazing art work, illustrations and photography that have been produced through this incredible journey.
