As Hungary today is facing a housing crisis, this year's Free School program of Krétakör entitled HOME examined the issue of housing poverty together with the target group of secondary school students. In the beginning of December 2014, a poster campaign was launched. 90 posters were designed by the students, raising awareness on prejudice against homelessness and exclusion of homeless people. When preparing for the campaign, students collaborated with homeless activists from The City is for All group. In the process, participating students became more sensitive and conscious regarding homelessness while the participating homeless people become more aware of how to control the discourse about them and gain hands-on experience in advocacy from an aesthetic approach. The posters were displayed in public places and received huge media coverage.
