The Lost Room
FrancisKnight / The Beaney / Porchlight

The Lost Room was a project curated by FrancisKnight Public Art Consultancy.

Mark C. Hewitt - working with words - and artist
Nicola Flower - working with personal objects, textiles, embroidery and drawing - interacted over three months with service-users of Porchlight homelessness charity in Canterbury, leading to an installation at The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge.

Mark’s contribution to the project included a blog, creative writing workshops and a series of interviews that became the basis for text interventions on luggage labels as part of the installation and the accompanying narrative of the project. Mark also helped out with the team creating the
MyStreets alternative tour guide for Canterbury, giving a view of the city that raises awareness of homelessness amongst the heritage and grandeur.
