Built City Speaker Series | A deeper dive into family friendly affordable housing

February 1, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us for the 2nd Built City Speaker Series Event,  2017-18: Explore with professionals how affordable housing is being built in Metro Vancouver. Find out how the urban design of affordable housing for the “missing middle” can contribute to community building and resiliency. Featuring guest speaker, Gordon Price, urbanist, six term City of Vancouver Councillor and a fellow at Simon Fraser University’s Centre for Dialogue.

Moderated by Gloria Venczel from RAIC-Architecture Canada, these break out workshop sessions will enable attendees to engage in conversations with five housing professionals on a myriad of relevant topics to the affordable housing discussion including: The role of cooperative housing in an affordable housing strategy; the importance of not warehousing people and designing pedestrian-friendly housing; how millennials and others can proactively advocate for more affordable housing and a variety of housing forms; the role of non-profit developers in creating affordable housing; and the significance of online, geo-based community consultation in engaging the “silent majority” around issues like city density  for affordable housing.
Experts will be present at each table, ready to answer your questions in detail. There will be three to five rotations by the attendees throughout the evening.  Experts include: Graham McGarva, Darren Kitchen, Robert Brown, Colleen Hardwick, Danny Oleksiuk, and RachelSelinger.
Tea, coffee and pastries will be served.
Note: This event will be videotaped for promotions for a future Built City event.
