Homelessness: Exhibition and Prayer Stations
February 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00am, repeating until April 5, 2019
From 22nd February until Easter the Cathedral will be one of five locations in the city exhibiting ‘Missing Pieces’: A History of Homelessness in Newcastle.
Prayer stations will help visitors to engage with the exhibition and to think prayerfully about the issue of homelessness in our city and region today.
The ‘Missing Pieces’ exhibition is a culmination of a year of research conducted by the Homeless History of Newcastle project team, thanks to funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
By researching the history of homelessness in Newcastle, ‘Missing Pieces’ explores the issues around, attitudes to and experiences of homelessness in our city today.
The exhibition opens on 22nd February and runs through early 2019 in Newcastle City Library, Discovery Museum, Laing Art Gallery, Bessie Surtees House and Newcastle Cathedral.
