Artist Anthony Luvera talks about his Frequently Asked Questions exhibition, which focuses on the impact of homelessness at the national level, demonstrating the true scale of the crisis through an individual’s navigation of bureaucratic and depersonalising centres of authority. Stemming from a parallel enquiry conducted over the past five years with Gerald Mclaverty, it presents responses from 110 local authorities across the UK, based on questions arising from Gerald’s own experience of homelessness.

Each table will hear from H4C members who have successfully implemented one of the commitments over the past year to talk candidly about their experiences and answer questions from around the table. The discussion will centre on how to successfully deliver on aims; how problems have been overcome; and what partnerships have proved to be successful. Attendees will be given a summary afterwards.
