Let's talk about ... making room

August 3, 2020 - August 4, 2020

“Housing has become the frontline defense against the coronavirus. Home has rarely
been more of a life or death situation.” – Leilani Farha, United Nations Special
Rapporteur on the Right to Adequate Housing

Monday August 3 6:00 - 7:30pm
PUSH is a film about housing and affordability. Filming Leilani Farha, the UN Special
Rapporteur on Adequate Housing over two years, the director notes that “words like
gentrification are not sharp enough at describing the issue.”

Tuesday August 4 6:00 - 8:00pm

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.
