She contacted the Coalition through our 38 degrees petition to say “Hi! It is a great thing that you are doing!” She told us about her artwork and went on, “I wondered if you wanted to use it as part of your campaign-you are very welcome to.” We certainly will, and she has agreed to set up her installtion again outside Hove Town Hall on Thursday afternoon, 25th July, when we shall be taking our petition to the full Council and asking them to adopt the Homeless Bill of Rights in full.
