As a collaboration between the City of Vancouver, Gen Why Media and the Vancouver Design Nerds, the re:THINK HOUSING JAM was designed to help the Mayor’s Task Force on Housing Affordability set out its goals and priorities for the future of housing in Vancouver. The re:THINK HOUSING JAM was a constructive and creative way to get new perspectives on how we deal with Vancouver’s affordable housing crisis.
Thursday, July 5, will mark the unveiling of the re:THINK HOUSING competition entries at the Exhibition Hall of the Roundhouse Community Centre (181 Roundhouse Mews). This is your chance to see all of the entries and vote for your favourite. Event runs from 7-10 p.m. with doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Local authors Tyee Bridge, Luke Brocki and poet laureate Evelyn Lau will provide unique reflections on housing in Vancouver in a short program hosted by CBC Radio One’s Shiral Tobin. With music, mingling and food carts on hand, this promises to be a fun, lively event. A cash bar will be available.
This event is free but seating is limited. Please RSVP at: rethinkreveal.eventbrite.ca
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
