The subject of this chapter is a case study about inclusion, access and citizenship that was carried out in 2015 as part of the pan-European Civic Epistemologies project, in collaboration with the Hidden Spire project in Oxford, UK. The case study brought together artists, homeless people and a local charity in order to examine how homeless people engage with digital cultural heritage and how it influenced their own practice. Negotiation between what is hidden and what is revealed through the writing of a theatre script created a context for the homeless community to explore cultural heritage and digital technologies.
