This event presented in partnership with St Basils, explores how people who are typical excluded by society experience home. 

You will look at youth homelessness through the lens of those who have experienced it and write your own poem based on the concept of home. You don’t need to have written poetry before – everyone is welcome.

Understand diverse experiences through the eyes of people who have lived through them and find out about the latest social justice research at the University of Birmingham.
