Making Home: Social & Affordable Housing in Regional Victoria

What's On

Architect and housing advocate, Tania Davidge, curates and hosts a talk at the Engine Room focused on issues that influence the provision of social and affordable housing in Australia. Bringing together representatives from Haven: Home, Safe (HHS), Clare Cousins Architects and Nightingale Housing, this panel will unpack what public and community housing looks like in regional Victoria and the key concerns that drive its delivery.

This talk will also address the importance of the delivery of housing as part of a broader infrastructure of care and looks at how architects, housing providers and government are working to make a difference. For this talk, Davidge has collaborated with HHS, an affordable rental housing and homelessness service provider organisation that aims to bridge the housing divide and create more inclusive, caring communities.
