In August, students, staff and leaders within Brisbane’s design community will sleep without shelter on one of the coldest nights of the year to help change the lives of South East Queensland women at risk of homelessness. 

Aiming for a record $25,000 in fundraising, the University of Queensland School of Architecture is hoping to not only raise awareness but also much needed funds to help break the cycle of homelessness and poverty in Brisbane. Funds from the 2019 Winter Sleepout will support an initiative developed by Second Chance Programme to support young women transitioning from state care that will allow them to establish stable and secure homes.

How you can help:

Students can get involved with the 2019 Winter Sleepout by organising a team and spreading the word to friends, family and peers to support your effort. We welcome students from all schools and all universities to join us. 

Support from the Brisbane design community has been instrumental in helping us reach amazing targets over the past years. We enjoy the friendly rivalry and spreading the message. Setting up a practice team is easy and a great way to demonstrate your practice's social engagement.
