Downtown Calgary

Let’s Talk About… Home

Apr 11

6:00 pm–10:00 pm

Auditorium & Atrium at Contemporary Calgary

The current housing crisis has been decades in the making. Housing is about more than mere shelter; it is a deeply personal and highly political reflection of what (and who) we value. Governments, scholars, professionals, and citizens continually try to shape cities into their own visions of 'home.' Many of these visions exclude Indigenous peoples, poor, racialized, and other marginalized communities. The consequences and systemic inequities of these housing policies are still being lived today, and exacerbated by the convergence of other crises: affordability, health care, climate change, and social and political polarization. On April 11, join our panelists as they discuss the need for housing as part of a healthy and equitable society, and explore ideas to tackle these challenges alongside communities and governments. Panelists Speaker - Ryan Hall - Ecottrust / Siksika Nation Housing Speaker: Dustin Couzens - Principal MODA Architecture Speaker: Dr. Uchechukwu Peter Umezurike - Writer & Poet Speakers: Cruz Garcia and Nathalie Frankowski - WAI Architecture Think Tank Moderator: Alicia Ta
