Museum of Homelessness

Explore and Test: MoH Creatives -- Next steps for the Museum of Homelessness

Museum of Homelessness works collaboratively with its members to explore the art, history and culture of homelessness in order to make a difference for homeless people today, and was originally developed through the support of PHF’s Ideas & Pioneers Fund. This grant enables the organisation to explore and test a delivery model where people with lived experience of homelessness are trained and supported to be creative facilitators; develop an evaluation framework; and collect evidence of the impact of this approach. This will inform its developing practice, organisational model and ability to influence the wider heritage sector.
