New client – Homeless History of Newcastle

Back in July we won the much coveted opportunity to work with Crisis on a pioneering, multi-faceted project called ‘The Homeless History of Newcastle’. The project is writing a new history of Newcastle upon Tyne from 1850 to the present day, exploring the lives and experiences of people affected by homelessness. Running throughout 2018, it will culminate in an innovative, high profile exhibition in central Newcastle in January 2019, with a series of public events scheduled throughout the year, including a walking tour in August 2018 and a conference in October 2018.

The project is being run in collaboration with Crisis Skylight Newcastle and is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, with support and input from local cultural organisations. The project is being led by a Project Team including museums professionals, volunteers and people with experience of homelessness.

We have designed a highly impactful brand identity and innovative visual personality for Homeless and we are currently working on exhibition materials. We will showcase the full case study next year and look forward to showing you how we have visualised the radical and contemporary approach of this ambitious project.
