Home Truths is Museum of the Home’s socially engaged initiative and commitment to discuss current issues of home and home beyond the physical space.
The programme brings together writers, creatives, artists, and academics to investigate what impacts individual experiences and understanding of home in the 21st century.
Past Home Truths have focused on topics such as homelessness, discrimination, racism, decolonisation and what they mean for today’s society.
The ideas behind Home Truths centre around discussions some often find difficult to face – but which are central to the experience of home, and the human experience. The idea of “truth” is often contested and subjective. Through reflection, talks, performances and more, we will amplify and highlight how these ideas of belonging vary from person to person.
Home Truths creates a deeper understanding of our society and inspires action, particularly in relation to our new Campaign for Change: Food Equality. It is a place to learn more, take part in discussions and for us all to find ways of living better together.
