Co-operative Approaches to the Affordable Housing Crisis

  • Kevin Club 30 Melbourne Place Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

The home ownership dream is increasingly out of reach and everyone in Victoria is feeling the impact. Co-operative housing most commonly sits in the ‘social housing’ space but is starting to be discussed as a shared ownership option too. The idea is pretty new to Australia – so we thought it was time to start a public conversation even if we don’t know all the answers yet.

Join 888 Co-operative Causeway Patron Magaret Feeney for an exploration to be led by our very own Co-operative Causeway member (and seasoned facilitator) Jacinta Cubis to discuss the value of existing co-operative housing options, as well as new global and local developments in shared/mixed equity co-operative housing to address our affordable housing crisis.

Join these leading practitioners and experts to help us explore these opportunities:

As an added bonus we welcome Waffle Irongirl (pictured below) for a slam poetry response (be warned Waffle Irongirl – for the uninitiated – is the poetical analogue of a heavy metal karaoke!).
