November is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month. Virgin Mobile declares that youth homelessness is public enemy number one. Through RE*Generation, the charity arm of Virgin Mobile, a charity concert with performances by Public Enemy, Blink 182, Weezer, and more was held at the George Washington University Lisner auditorium. All proceeds went to Sasha Bruce House, a non-profit shelter for homeless youth in Washington D.C.
Contributing to the night was Textual Healing, “a series of interactive public projections and performance formats that encourage creation of dialog through text messaging from mobile phones.” At the concert, anyone could text their message to a specific number and see it projected it onto the auditorium wall. Txtual Healing has done a series of projects a round the world, you can view more of their work here.
