Seen and not heard: the untold history of homelessness

22 November, 2017, 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

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 brings 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.

‘Without Visible Means’ is part of a number of activities relating to the history of vagrancy, which have been co-ordinated by the Institute of Historical Research.
