An exhibition highlighting the struggles of economically disadvantaged people in Taipei opened on Thursday at the Bopiliao Historic Block (剝皮寮歷史街區) in Wanhua District (萬華).

The exhibition, run jointly by eight non-profit organizations, is spread over three exhibition spaces: one highlighting homeless people’s stories, one housing workshops and another exploring discussion topics related to low-income households, the organizers said.

Some of the items on display in the story space include a wheelchair similar to the kind used by people with physical disabilites who sell goods on the street, and a bicycle covered in plastic bags representing homeless people who carry their few personal belongings with them in bags tied to bicycles, they said.

Signs at the exhibition share the words of homeless people who are forced to make difficult decisions in their lives, they added.    [FULL  STORY]
