Join us for a week-long celebration of arts and homelessness projects in Coventry, created and co-produced by people who have current or previous lived experience of homelessness. The festival takes place at venues across the city centre between Friday 8 - Saturday 16 October, coinciding with World Homelessness Day on Sunday 10 October 2021.

Created in collaboration with the Coventry Cyrenians, Homeless Monopoly is a giant interactive game featuring lived experience of homeless and ex-homeless people in the Coventry area. Playing the game will open your eyes to the many routes into homelessness, the issues faced by those who find themselves in this position and some of the support available in the city.
Saturday 9th October – Saturday 16th October - 11.30am-4.30pm each day
Dates and locations:
Saturday 9th October – Coventry Cathedral (as part of the Coventry Sleepout)
Tuesday 12th October – Methodist Central Hall
Saturday 16th October – Belgrade Plaza
To accompany the game, there is a free-to-download creative toolkit to explore issues of homelessness with young people.
Homeless Monopoly was created during a collaboration between Jackie Calderwood, DMLL, Coventry University and Nadine Holdsworth, University of Warwick.
