Event description

Description

Public discussions of social housing often perpetuate stigmas around poverty and homelessness. Meanwhile, the voices of people who need social housing are not heard. This three-part event series aims to encourage more reflective and empathetic discussions by centering these voices through first-person narrative and the arts.




Part 2: Listening to Different Voices in the Process

This event will feature the perspectives of individuals who have experienced poverty and homelessness, exploring how these voices can be better represented in public dialogue.

Our partner for the event will be Megaphone's Speakers Bureau.
