Seen and not heard: the untold history of homelessness

November 22, 2017, 9:00am BST - 5:30pm
Institute of Historical Research

Cardboard Citizens, 77A Greenfield Rd
London E1 1EJ
United Kingdom

Topic areas


Join us to take part in a timely conversation about the unheeded history of homelessness. How can we find ways to listen to the voices of those who lack access to housing, sustenance or security?

This workshop includes a performance of testimony from the homeless community recorded by the artist Robert Lenkiewicz in 1970s Plymouth and will bring together researchers, activists, actors and artists to ask how the experiences of homeless men and women can shape the way we write the histories of excluded groups. Participants include Cardboard Citizens – leading pioneers of Forum theatre techniques – and the book designer Esther McManus.
