With the ongoing housing crisis resulting from long-standing class and racial inequities (all exacerbated by the pandemic), it can feel like an impossible task to secure stable, affordable housing or studio space in some communities. But you’re not alone, and there are strategies to make the hunt easier. In this interactive workshop, artists will learn about locally relevant housing rights and resources and hear firsthand knowledge about navigating the housing market. This workshop micro-series is led by Ngoc-Tran Vu, a 1.5-generation Vietnamese American interdisciplinary and transnational artist whose socially engaged work draws from her experience as a community organizer, educator, and healer. Additional insight provided by guest specialists in each field.
This is part one of a 3-part series. Participants may register for all sessions or select the topic most relevant to them. Register for Part 2 and Part 3.
