Driven by lived experience of homelessness, MoH collects and shares the art, histories and culture of homelessness and housing to change society for the better.
We make the invisible visible through research, events and exhibitions. We do not yet have a building, so we are working with partners to produce our public programme. We are a small community who meet regularly and are currently located in Brixton.

Since we launched just over two years, MoH has worked around the UK bringing together volunteers, people affected by homelessness, community members and artists to research the history of homelessness, discuss and present stories, objects and art to help people understand each other better.
Here are some highlights from the journey:
Co-founders Matt and Jess and collaborating artist David Tovey are featured in the New York Times, to highlight State of the Nation, our first ever launch event and campaign launched in 2017.
Co-founder Jess talks about soup, the history of the grassroots scene of care and her own story when she met JP on Saturday Morning Live back in March 2017
A long read with Inside Housing on the journey of MoH and the hidden history of homelessness.
Co-founder Jess talks to the Canary’s Steve Topple about MoH bringing the State of the Nation campaign to Liverpool.
Film-maker Dorothy Allen-Pickard blends story-telling with science and discussion with the MoH core group, as part of this docu-drama on our Manchester Objectified project.
