Streetwise Opera

Streetwise Opera is an award-winning charity that uses music to help people make positive changes in their lives. Working with people who have experienced homelessness and other members of the community, it runs workshop programmes across England and stages critically-acclaimed operas.

The Gulbenkian Foundation put forward £28,000 towards the initial stage in the development of an arts and homelessness international network, including an exchange between practitioners in the UK and Brazil ahead of the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympiad.
