Youth Homelessness Matters Day 2011
The Tasmanian events for Youth Homelessness Matters Day (YHMD) increased from last year with five events held statewide (two were YNOT). The main event was a couchsurfing activity held in the Elizabeth Street Mall, Hobart, which included a ‘wall’ that a young graffiti artist worked on during the event.
The event was well attended, and we even had the ‘difficult’ problem of trying to get people off the couch.
We were also well supported by local politicians with Minister for Community Development Cassy O’Connor MP, Shadow Ministers Elise Archer and Jacquie Petrusma, and Independent Andrew Wilkie attending, as well as Deputy Mayor Helen Burnet from Hobart City Council.
