The Big Issue vendors and friends present a showcase performance in the ACMI Cinemas, after the first day of football action at the Melbourne 2008 Homeless World Cup.

The Big Issue in Melbourne has run a popular series of writing and visual art workshops for the homeless and disadvantaged throughout 2008, including players in the street soccer program. The workshops have been led by some of Melbourne's most talented artists, including award winning writers Arnold Zable and Alicia Sometimes.

This is a rare opportunity to hear the unique and gifted voices of The Big Issue vendors and friends in their own words. Inspirational, stirring, poetic and entertaining.
