Raw Truths: Resist!
1 July 3-4pm at Cardboard Citizens
Housing resistance has always been there. From Ken Loach and Cathy Come Home to Heathcote Williams, there have always been people fighting for housing as a human right and taking things into their own hands.
Taking the State of Frestonia as an inspiration, this fascinating, interactive free session with Museum of Homelessness will explore some of what came before and after in the squatting scene and alternative communities. We’ll explore archive materials and present day testimony which shine a light on resistance through the decades.
As part of the discussion we warmly invite contributions from people who have been there themselves. Please bring an object or a story if you like.
This event is taking place as part of our Home Truths Festival of Heritage Events, made possible with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
3-4pm on 1 July
