We are excited to announce Private Housing/Public Interest: A Debate!
At the Design Exchange on Tuesday October 3rd 2017 at 7:00pm.
In the Greater Toronto Area, there is a growing crisis around housing. It is a problem that impacts nearly every segment of the population from recent graduates, to new families, low income workers, newcomers and the growing senior population. Buying or renting housing that meets individual needs (i.e. is the right size, in the right location at a price that is affordable) is becoming increasingly challenging.
Please join us for a debate with professionals in the real estate, government and development sectors to hear workable solutions from all points of view.
Tickets are available here.
Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in Sukkahville 2016!
Sukkahville is an international design competition, exhibition and awareness raising event that challenges entrants to re-imagine the Sukkah. A Sukkah is a temporary structure built during the Jewish festival of Sukkot to commemorate the 40 years that Jews spent wandering the desert. It is described as a symbolic wilderness shelter, symbolizing the frailty and transience of life. Proposing an innovative Sukkah design that balances the dichotomies of new/old, open/closed, temporary/permanent is the challenge inherent in this competition.
The Kehilla Residential Programme is a non-profit housing agency that began Sukkahville in 2011 to highlight its affordable housing initiatives. Sukkahville helps create a conversation about affordable housing, raises public awareness through an interactive Sukkah exhibition and most importantly, it generates funds to create more affordable housing in Toronto.
