Over a full year of COVID-19 lockdown, Cardboard Citizens gathered people with lived experience of homelessness to read Daniel Defoe’s Journal of the Plague Year – his personal documentation of the Plague of 1665 – and reflect upon the similarities and differences from their own experiences of a pandemic. Citz Members kept their own journals, and responded creatively to the different kind of city they now saw around them.
Cardboard Citizens now presents highlights from the year-long project, told through videos, diary extracts and performances, from the same streets that Defoe and his contemporaries walked.
We’re screening six films every day from Monday 5th to Thursday 8th July from 1pm to 2.30pm.

There will be two performances of material from our year-long London on Lockdown project, including film and readings, on Friday 9th July at 2pm, and again at 6pm.
