Finding Home: What if you were forgotten too?

January 12 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Having a home, living indoors, is a basic human right, one that 500 or more individuals do not have on any given night in the Asheville area alone.

Finding Home, a collection of songs, new and found monologues, scenes, and dance will tell the true stories of our neighbors who have lived for years without a home and through the work of Homeward Bound have been able to feel safe and supported for the first time in their lives. Through partnering with Homeward Bound this show will not only do the job of a fundraiser and raise money to help find homes for those in need but will also do the job of theater, of a story, by spreading ideas to change people’s hearts and minds. That is when true change can begin.
Created and Directed by Candice Dickinson, Finding Home is an immersive show staged in promenade and she asks the audience to anticipate some movement during the performance.

In addition to the show, tickets for this evening will include food from Jacob Sessoms of Table’s new restaurant venture, chocolates from the Chocolate Fetish, clean and sour beers from Wicked Weed Brewing, and a special one time brew from Jessica Dickinson (Original Clean Brewer of Wicked Weed Brewing).


Come join us and help end homelessness in WNC.
