If housing is a right, what’s the path to a more equitable city that houses all? How do diversity and mixed housing options coexist within a neighbourhood? Join the Calgary Public Library in partnership with d.talks, for a discussion about housing, inclusion, and the challenges to making the room so that everyone has a stable roof.
Prior to the discussion, attendees are invited you to to view the documentary PUSH on Monday night. PUSH is a documentary on housing and affordability. Directed by Frederik Gertten, the documentary includes interviews with housing advocate Leilani Farha, sociologist Saskia Sassen, economist Joseph Stiglitz, and journalist Roberto Saviano. Filming Leilani Farha over two years, the director notes that “words like gentrification are not sharp enough at describing the issue.”
