COMMUNITY CONVERSATION: AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN HAMPTON ROADS
Thursday, January 26
Join us for a panel discussion exploring affordable housing in Hampton Roads. Our panel will include artists, organizations, and community members who are working to create awareness on the issues of cost, quality, instability, overcrowding, and racial disparities in housing. We’ll discuss the efforts being made within our community to establish affordable housing for all despite the structural inequities that exist within our economic systems.
More Than Shelter
The essentials for human survival are food, water, and shelter. These needs take precedence over all the others. Virginia MOCA continues our investigations of basic human needs with the new exhibition More Than Shelter. Eleven artists received an invitation to participate in this exhibition. We asked each one to consider what the idea of shelter means to them and choose an avenue of investigation. The artists connected with partners who provided unique insight into their area of expertise. Shelter is both a verb and a noun. It can mean a home, a community, or the people and places that makes us feel safe and welcomed. It also means to listen, care, and to support one another, our community, our land, our minds, our society, and our futures.
