Come to BAK on Sunday 20 October for a public event in the context of project Trainings for the Not-Yet: Decommodifying Housing, a role-playing exercise with Homebaked Community Land Trust (CLT) (Britt Jurgensen), De Nieuwe Meent (Selçuk Balamir), de Kasko (Joska Ottjes), Refugee Collective We Are Here, Ethel Baraona Pohl, and Irene Calabuch Miron.

After a week of knowledge-exchange on care work, policy making, and future projections on housing, the conveners of the Decommodifying Housing training will share their learnings through a practical exercise of role-playing.

Everyone is invited to join this simulation of diverse scenarios relating to radical housing alternatives, drawn from the experiences and urgencies shared during the training. Working in groups, the proposed challenges are faced with a strategic and cooperative approach, opening a space for reflection around the learnings of the training week.

Cannot make it to the role play session? Join us at 16.00 for the presentations and discussion, where we will put in common our experiences and discuss further alliances and collaborations.
