Community project

October 01 2023

The Museum of Homelessness, based in London, is running a programme of community events and projects in the Autumn, and they want you to be involved. By the Museum of Homelessness team

The Museum of Homelessness is opening a permanent location at Manor House Lodge in Spring 2024. To prepare for opening, the team has organised a series of community programmes designed to involve homeless people in the museum and provide activities and support for people.

Everyone is welcome to join in the activities. There is no booking required and the lodge is accessible, with an accessible toilet, quiet space and ramps. The programmes run this October and November. For exact dates keep an eye on the Museum of Homelessness social media sites (@our_moh on Instagram). Below are some details of the different events and projects taking place.

Open garden
The museum is running drop-in gardening sessions and workshops. Together, organisers and people attending the sessions will redesign and transform the garden space at Manor House Lodge. The open garden project runs on Tuesdays 11am-3pm, with lunch provided.

The Museum of Homelessness’ resident yoga teacher, Lorraine, is running yoga classes for all levels and abilities at Manor House Lodge. The classes are open Thursdays 11am-12pm, with lunch provided.

Art workshop
The Museum is also running an art workshop and open studio. The workshop is an artist-led class exploring art using different methods and materials. The studio, meanwhile, provides visitors the time and space to make their own art. Both activities run on Thursdays, with the open studio on from 1-2pm and the creative workshop open from 2-4pm.

Music and singing
Weekly music workshops and singing sessions are open to all levels and facilitate the exploration of different instruments, themes and genres. Classes also involve breath-work and collaborative singing. The workshops are open Thursdays 5-7pm, with dinner provided at 7pm.

All activities are held at the Manor House Lodge in Finsbury Park, N4 2DE
