Alexandra Oxaceley on giving a voice to those living on the streets

In this episode of Newsmakers, Alexandra Oxaceley, head of non-profit Stëmm vun der Strooss, talks about homelessness in Luxembourg in light of the upcoming exhibition by George Edward Nixon, the late photographer and ambassador for homeless people.

Alexandra shares her more than 20 years experience as the head of the Stëmm vun der Strooss, which provides assistance to those in need. She also tells us about George, as he was known by others who lived on the streets like himself but also by politicians and people working in the cultural sector. He passed away in 2019 and an exhibition featuring his photos will take place between 2 December and 2 January to commemorate his role in giving a voice to homeless people. A keen photographer, George carefully chronicled the lives of his peers.

The exhibition’s inauguration will take place at Place de Strasbourg on 8 December at 11.30am.
