The Santa Cruz County Affordable Housing Crisis Study Community Dialog, Art Exhibit, and Digital Project Launch

The campus-community event on Thursday, October 13 will showcase the findings of a multi-media research project on the affordable housing crisis in Santa Cruz. We will exhibit art and new digital tools focusing on how local residents experience the housing crisis, as well as results from a large-scale survey and interview project carried out by UC Santa Cruz students in coordination with Community Bridges and other local community organizations in Beach Flats and Lower Ocean neighborhoods. Students and community members will share their stories, testimonies, and art on the challenges of creating a sense of “home” during a housing crisis. The event will conclude with an open community dialog about issues facing renters in our community and possible steps forward. This is a kick-off event for Affordable Housing Awareness Week in Santa Cruz, and community organizations will also be on hand to share information about their work and the week’s events.

Free event, no registration required. Translation provided.
