'Shoes Have Names' at New Brewery Arts

Saturday 29 January - Sunday 3rd April 2022

New Brewery Arts is excited to announce a new exhibition. Shoes Have Names, a collaboration with conceptual fashion designer Jo Cope and Shelter. Stories of homelessness have never been told like this before.

Ten international artists, shoemakers and designers were paired up with a formally homeless person that Shelter has helped through its frontline services. The show features a collection of handmade artworks inspired by the personal experiences of real people facing homelessness. From shoes made out of an old sofa, to the use of the latest CAD software and 3D printing.

The exhibition aims to raise awareness of the thousands of people tackling evictions, poor housing conditions, landlord issues and homelessness.

Each shoe or pair of shoes created by the designers are named after the person who’s been supported by Shelter. The designers have been asked to create a unique design reflecting the stories of the individuals using the materials they are most comfortable using from their current design specialisms.

The show has a dominating/striking red aesthetic– Jo Cope explains; ‘there is an emergency, there is a housing crisis, it is a call to action, that is what the red is about’.
