Here’s a link to a story I wrote for Atlanta Art Papers in 1994 about the Los Angeles Poverty Department and its residency in Raleigh, North Carolina. The performance troupe of homeless and formerly homeless people works on Skid Row in L.A., but is often on the road, examining the issues of poverty in other cities. This story covers their February 1994 residency in Raleigh, during which the troupe met and collaborated with homeless people in that city, and looks at the culminating performance at City Gallery. The story was republished (with permission from Art Papers) on the Community Arts Network in 1999 and is located in the CAN archive on the Web.
