Description

Dear All

Housing Ideas Exchange. A Manchester networking, empowerment, ideas and action forum about housing the city.

Thursday, 7 December in the Geoffrey Manton Building at the Manchester Metropolitan University from 4 to 8 PM. Rosamund St West (off Oxford Road) Manchester M15 6LL.

We are excited to tell you about our free housing ideas exchange networking event. We are seeking organisations, campaigners, academics, interested parties be they in the private sector, the third sector or people concerned about or housing.

We want YOU to take part in this ideas symposium and networking event, looking at housing Manchester. We are offering organisations a free table to decorate, own and interact from in the huge auditorium with a view to doing their own research and interacting with students and the public.

The vital question is this. If the cliche quote by Anthony Wilson is “we are Manchester and we do things differently here”, how does that apply across the spectrum of what Manchester needs to do differently regarding housing its population? What do we need to do? What aren’t we doing differently?

We would like each table team to present a fun research activity or game that will involve people and gather some data or engage people. It might be an opportunity for you to do some market research, to gather opinions and ideas, inform people your group’s perspective, gather volunteers or interact with new people and organisations for action and change. The ideas will be presented for review and put into a report to policymakers.

Whatever your background in any subject, if you have an interest in representing a perspective on homelessness, tenancy, affordable or social housing, design and architecture, policy and planning, have ideas for green or different forms of housing, we want you to stimulate thought and interact with a range of new approaches and people.

There will be a final presentation in a lecture theatre with key findings, and a “just a minute” game. There are opportunities for short lectures, screening and interactive activities in the evening, so please inquire if you would like a spot or chance to use one of the six lectures theatres we have hired.

To take part on a first come first served basis and for more information, please email synchronicityMMU@gmx.com

We hope to hear from you soon and please get involved in the first #HousingIdeasExchange!
