UNSEEN offers women who have, or are experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity the opportunity to share their stories.  The purpose of UNSEEN is to ensure the voices of women who have, or are experiencing homelessness are included in conversations which can inform and improve social policy.

This podcast provides a first-hand insight into the diversity of who finds themselves homeless and why. We hope you enjoy listening to the stories of the women. Episode one provides a taster of what is to come in the following episodes.

UNSEEN participant Evie shared her story with the the Terrible Happy Place podcast in episode #132 – EVIE: Nevertheless she persisted.

Evie says:

“This conversation is confronting, uncomfortable (at times), educational, and straight-up no bullshit. We discuss violence against women, social inequity, religious trauma and much much more. This might be one of the most profound podcasts and interviews I’ve ever recorded so buckle in. Please read the show notes before listening as there is a trigger warning.”

UNSEEN participant Jai experienced homelessness as a young adult. Her uplifting podcast, ‘Thankfulness’ will provide others an opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to those who helped them through difficult times. Supported by Blur Projects and the City of Sydney, Jai’s podcast ‘Thankfulness’ affords people, especially women and those affected by homelessness and mental-health issues, the opportunity to express thanks to someone who has helped them in their life journey. Jai’s podcast will be made with assistance from sound engineer Dieter Knierim and sound editor Jenny Kapp, professionals with disability who have already delivered outstanding outcomes to UNSEEN. The program will be promoted through, and its online content shared via UNSEEN’s existing support network amongst the public, local businesses, volunteers and service providers and advertised through What’s On Sydney, Eventbrite, social media and the UNSEEN website. Twenty people will share 5-10 minute narratives with Jai in multiple sessions recorded at Blur offices in Woolloomooloo throughout January 2022. Editing will occur during February and the podcast launched on International Women’s Day 8 March 2022 at Redfern Community Centre with a segment pitched to FBi Radio and other media outlets. ‘Thankfulness’ celebrates a community spirit of care and belonging in Sydney and will ensure the sustainability and longevity of UNSEEN in new, innovative ways.
