Leatherwear company Mere is set to team up with Youth Off The Streets with the launch of From The Ground Up.

With homelessness continuing to rise in Sydney, Mere designer James Noakes hit the streets with camera in hand to document the lives of a series of people as they battle through homelessness. These stories have now come together in a hardcover book called From The Ground Up which will be released along with an exhibition of street artists.Books and prints will be sold on the night with proceeds and donations going to Youth Off The Streets.

The From The Ground Up exhibition launch will be on Thursday August 28 at District 101 in Surry Hills from 6pm.
