Event description

Description

In conjunction with Oxford International Women's Festival , Oxford Community-led Housing* research project and Transition by Design is organising a session on "Taking Control of our Housing: Women Leading the Charge", to celebrate the efforts of a number of women pioneering community-led housing in various forms in Oxfordshire. In line with the festival's broader theme of "Winning the Vote: Women's Suffrage 100 Years On", the session aims to raise awareness around community-led housing and an opportunity to gain fresh interest and broaden the movement.

Join us in the much needed discussion to highlight that affordable, safe and secure housing is a basic human right. The session will champion the idea that women can and are taking action to tackle the housing crisis in Oxford, and to generate discussion that homes and housing shape our identity as women and as human beings. We’re also very keen to find out more about the challenges you’re facing with the housing market. And to top it up, let's celebrate the efforts of women in community-led housing.

Event format:

    Interactive panel discussion

    Panel speakers from Kindling Housing Coop, Edge Housing, Dragonfly Housing Coop, Oxford Fairer Housing Network, Oxford Housing Crisis Group and many more!

    *Oxford Community-Led Housing research project is a new partnership project by Oxford Community Foundation, Community First Oxfordshire and Oxford Community Land Trust. We have been commissioned by Oxford City Council to conduct a research project on how community-led housing could be delivered sustainably in Oxford. Community Led Housing (CLH) is about local people playing a leading and lasting role in solving local housing problems, creating genuinely affordable homes and strong communities in ways that are difficult to achieve through mainstream housing.
