re: THINK HOUSING
Friday, June 15, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM (PDT)
Vancouver, British Columbia
Aimed at everyone who has an interest in affordable housing, from the general public, to designers, planners and architects, to philanthropists, students, non profits and financial institutions, the re:THINK HOUSING JAM is a constructive and creative way to get new perspectives on how we deal with Vancouver’s affordable housing crisis.
The event will also be an opportunity for participants to develop projects for the open ideas competition on housing affordability currently being run by the City of Vancouver (submission deadline is June 29, 2012). Read more about the City of Vancouver’s Ideas Competition here: http://vancouver.ca/housing/rethink/index.htm
As a collaboration between the City of Vancouver, Gen Why Media and the Vancouver Design Nerds, the re:THINK HOUSING JAM is designed to help the Mayor’s Task Force on Housing Affordability set out its goals and priorities for the future of housing in Vancouver. Our goal is to generate provocative, bold new ideas while hosting a solution-based discussion that addresses Vancouver’s affordability challenge head-on.
