The latest exhibition at the city museum celebrates the talents of people who are or who have been homeless.

Fantasy landscapes, cartoons, local views, and poetry are all included in this amazing and thought-provoking exhibition. Revealing the skills and enthusiasm of the local artists involved.

The exhibition is part of a wider project by Gloucester City Council’s Heritage Service and GEAR, (Gloucestershire Emergency Accommodation Resource). Aiming to provide access for homeless people in the city to a range activities and workshops, allowing them to gain skills and improve their quality of life.

Other parts of the project include research into the history and archaeology of the GEAR building, an archaeological excavation, and the creation of a mosaic based on the findings.

This groundbreaking project is the first of it’s kind and is already provoking interest countrywide.

The exhibition is taking place at Gloucester City Museum, Brunswick Road from Saturday 6 June – Saturday 4 July and is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 5pm.

GEAR provides accommodation and support for homeless and vulnerable people in Gloucester who often suffer from the general misconception that they have few interests, abilities or aspirations.
