Join in a national conversation on homelessness

As part of our State of the Nation weekender, join us for a series of talks by artists, journalists, politicians and others with experience of homelessness.

State of the Nation comes at a time where all forms of homelessness are on the rise. Through this set of conversations we will ask; can art and creativity make a difference? What have we learnt from the past? What kind of society to we want to live in tomorrow?
