Each year, the International Street Paper Network (INSP) features the network’s over 9,000 vendors across 35 countries for Vendor Week, a week celebrating vendors around the world. While it’s important to confront the issues vulnerable people deal with daily, sometimes we can miss the little things that make us all, homeless or not, who we are. So, this year we asked something a little different of vendors: if you could share your favorite song with everyone, what track would you choose and why? Music is universal and ties us together, much like the street paper network ties vendors together from all over the world. The following feature has vendors explaining the meaning behind their choices. As expected, the list is as diverse and eclectic as our vendors.
