Community Dialog, Arts Exhibit, and Digital Project Launch

This campus-community event 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 on how local residents experience the housing crisis, as well as results from a survey and interview project carried out by UCSC students in coordination with Community Bridges and other community groups in the Beach Flats and Lower Ocean neighborhoods. Students and community members will share their stories, testimonies & 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 residents 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.
