CoHousing Inclusive exhibition 13th-20th February 2019

We're excited to bring the CoHousing Inclusive Exhibition to Wellington City all the way from the Institute of Creative Sustainability in Berlin.

https://cohousinginclusive.net/

The exhibition will be open to the Public at the VUW School of Architecture Exhibition space - 137 Vivian Street, Wellington from the 13th to the 20th of Feb, 9.00 – 4.30pm.

This public exhibition follows the CoHousing Hui (http://cohohui.nz/) a ticketed event hosted in the same location on the 12th of February. If you're interested in attending that event there are limited places available.

“Experimental dwelling forms - CoHousing Cultures - are entering the mainstream. But to what

extent are they accessible and affordable for all, including people with more or less money, with or without refugee experience, with or without disabilities? Community-led housing initiatives are already developing diverse, sustainable neighbourhoods, driven by civil society and increasingly supported by foundations, cooperatives and municipalities as well as housing companies and developers.” - Michael La Fond, and Larisa Tsvetkova, Institute of Creative Sustainability, Berlin

The exhibition features:

· Ten different model projects coming from six European cities that express a new generation of CoHousing, dealing with issues of affordability, participation, inclusion and neighbourhood development.

· Four visionary, not yet realized projects from different German cities show how ideas of accessible housing are even further being developed.

· Four visionary strategies coming from a number of regions are showing how new community-led housing and neighbourhood projects can be assisted by larger, non-profit-oriented development structures.

· Feature articles explaining both options and challenges regarding ownership and organizational structures, as well as various forms of cooperation.

· Statements are included from a large number of housing experts from around the world, to illustrate the diversity of practices, strategies and visions.

“In CoHousing neighborhoods, we build relationships with our neighbours by working together on

practical matters, whether that is a garden workday or making dinner. As we work together, we build trust. Over time, we find our own edges softening, gaining greater empathy for each other. This empathy accompanies us in the rest of our lives, opening our hearts to others. Living in community teaches us to listen more carefully to what others have to share. When our communities are truly successful, they give us energy and support to engage actively in the larger civil society to empathetically and respectfully address the challenges of the human condition.” - Kathryn McCamant, Architect, McCamant & Durrett Architects and the CoHousing Company, Nevada City
