Truths of the Last 10 Years is a micro exhibition hosted inside the old Fire Station at Clerkenwell. Taking place in the Outside Project’s LGBTQI+ community centre, it has been created by a range of groups and people who have come together to support each other at a time when homelessness is at an all time high.

Artist Anthony Luvera, in association with MoH has launched ‘Taking Place’, a new free exhibition running from 11th January to 29th February, 2020 at the Gallery at Foyles that uncovers the shocking and poignant challenge faced by those experiencing homelessness.
Founded in 2015, Museum of Homelessness (MoH) is a community driven social justice museum, created and run by people with direct experience of homelessness.
MoH tackles homelessness and housing inequality by amplifying the voices of its community through research, events, workshops, campaigns and exhibitions. MoH also provides direct support – bursaries, mentoring, training and practical support – to its community members.
Together we collect and share the art, history and culture of homelessness & housing inequality to change society for the better. Together we find hope in deeply divided and difficult times.
The Dying Homeless Project
The Dying Homeless Project is a long-term project that remembers the stories and lives of people who die homeless in the UK. As well as being a memorial, the project is also an ongoing campaign for change.
The Bureau of Investigative Journalism started the project it ran from October 2017 – March 2019. They documented that a shocking 800 people died whilst homeless. This hugely important work from the Bureau has been explored at the All Party Parliamentary Group on Homelessness and has prompted the Office for National Statistics to begin to collect some data on the deaths of homeless people, however not the full story as to how and why people have died.
Most of us involved in MoH have lost people dear to us far too early due to homelessness. This is a project that we feel strongly committed to continuing, so that we can honour those lost in our community and fight for change.
