We are so happy to announce that two of the HMMP film makers are speaking (and screening their work) as part of the Radical Housing and the City Seminar Series, organized by the Purple Thistle Insitute.
From the invitation:
Talking about housing (in Vancouver and elsewhere) tends to revert to dogmatism and cliche, and acting in the face of neo-liberalism often induces nihilism, fatalism or worse.
Demanding more government investment in housing is critical, but are there other ways that we can speak? Are there places where people and communities can act beyond lobbying? Is another world of housing possible? Let’s theorize a better way to think about land and talk about real strategies.
Sunday April 21st, 3-5 pm at the Purple Thistle Centre
This first session will begin with a screening a short film by Savanna Todd:
“Give Me Solace”
Followed by a discussion with Savanna and Matt Hern.
