 Over Our Heads: Housing and Homelessness

Image1

Description

As we face increases in extreme weather and limited crisis accommodation, more people are being trapped on the streets rather than the comfort of a home. How does climate crisis impact the gentrification of cities like Melbourne? A changed, more extreme climate seems navigable only by the wealthy, but this session explores tactics citizens might use to counter their displacement from their own communities.

Over our heads: Housing and homelessness is a session of the North Melbourne School of Displacement by artist Keg de Souza, co-programmed by Wirlomin Noongar collaborator Claire G. Coleman. The School puts learning itself under the microscope with a series of discussions that offer vital correctives to the methods of sharing knowledge that dominate our society.

North Melbourne School of Displacement is part of Refuge, a five-year project that offers us new ways to rally as a community and prepare for climatic events.

Presented by Arts House as part of Refuge 2019: Displacement.
