Guided by the question, “for whom is the city built?” and borrowing from similar policy based theatre work, participants will be lead in acting out the impact of key housing policies and policy questions, with an interest towards helping residents understand the stakes, opinions and goals of the various players involved, and why finding solutions can be difficult.
Actors will be assigned diverse roles such as homeowner, renter, real estate agent, foreign investor, contractor banker. They will be provided with a current or proposed policy and be asked to act out the implications of that policy. The eventual goal of Improv-ing the City is to help participants better understand the complexity of the issues, what is causing the real estate crisis, and identify what policy changes Vancouver could adopt moving forward to address the problem.
This workshop session is one in a series of four Design Sundays, and can be experienced as such or as a standalone event.
Date: April 24, 2:30-5:00pm
