We shall consider different forms of Community Led and Cooperative Housing (CLaCH) and explore how these options might be established as a middle way between social housing and housing built for profit.

Outline programme: two sets of Pecha Kucha contributions exploring the case for community led homes in urban context as well as rural with a convivial meal:

  • 5.30pm Doors open
  • 6.00pm Welcome, drinks and mingling / exhibition
  • 6.30pm Why? – benefits of plurality in housing provision and of mutual aid in developing and managing intentional communities
  • 7.15pm Simple supper
  • 8.00pm How? – processes and case studies: what has worked well
  • 8.45 Wrap up – Close around 9pm.

This event will build on the CLaCH Manifesto, CLaCH Roundtable October 2021 and the Five Roadshows May/June 2022.

This is part of Architecture Fringe 2023.
