#3 Lincoln Creates Network with Museum of Homelessness

Lincoln Creates Network

The Lincoln Creates Network (LCN) brings together and celebrates the breadth of critical and applied creative practices in Lincolnshire. The Lincoln Creates Network + Artist Talk series, is designed to support local creative professional development, peer learning and networking as well as critical conversation and debate. The programme creates space for local artists and creative practitioners to share opportunities, creative expertise and developments within their own work, as well as hear from nationally and internationally established artists who have been welcomed to the city.

Museum of Homelessness

Museum of Homelessness (MoH) is an independent charity that is responsive to the day to day realities of homelessness. The museum has been created by people with direct experience of homelessness to collect and share the art, history and culture of homelessness and housing in order to make a difference to society today.
