Knowledge Quarter Private View: Bedrooms of London

27 03 2019 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

- Free, Booking Required

Enjoy a special opportunity to see the Foundling Museum’s latest exhibition out of hours.

In partnership with The Childhood Trust, Bedrooms of London presents a new body of work by photographer Katie Wilson highlighting the damaging consequences for children arising from the shortage of social housing in London. Focusing on the spaces in which children are sleeping, the photographs are shown alongside first-hand narratives from families, and offer a poignant insight into the lives and experiences of children living in poverty across London.

In a city where extreme poverty and wealth exist side-by-side, Bedrooms of London makes visible the often shocking and unseen reality of home life for the 700,000 children currently living below the poverty line in our capital, and challenges the prejudices and stereotypes associated with child poverty. Shown in the context of the Foundling Museum, the exhibition builds on the story of the Foundling Hospital, highlighting the situation today for some of London’s most vulnerable children.

Tickets will be available from 12 February here.
