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:
Jacques Boulet, Borderlands Co-operative
Nicola Foxworthy, Common Equity Housing
Elena Pereyra, Co-housing Australia.
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!).
