State of the Nation: Conversations

What can we do about the homelessness crisis in the UK?

Throughout 2017, Museum of Homelessness has been presenting State of the Nation around the UK to ask the questions that matter about homelessness today.

State of the Nation is due to end in early 2017 but many questions remain unresolved. This event will ask them again using Anthony Luvera and Gerald Mclaverty’s Frequently Asked Questions that is on show during the week as its basis.

We will bring together activists and creative practitioners who are responding to homelessness to comment on issues presented throughout the week. This will be done through practical workshops, presentations and interactive sessions led by those connected with the issues through their creative work.
