BUSHWICK: Participatory Mapping & Housing Workshop

BUSHWICK: A RIGHT TO HOUSING?
PARTICIPATORY MAPPING & HOUSING WORKSHOP
Sunday,September 28th

On Sunday 9/28 I hope you will come out to collectively learn and think with us about our local land and our RIGHT TO HOUSING. Please come help us map our community together. We will be highlighting & tracking LOCAL: VACANT PROPERTIES, VACANT BUILDINGS, NEW DEVELOPMENTS, CONSTRUCTION, REAL ESTATE LISTINGS… North West Bushwick Community Group is excited to have the support of the New School, and for our partnership with Saint Joseph’s Church & The Silent Barn, to create this engaging opportunity on Sunday.

A Right to Housing, a gazette developed by students from the Design and Urban Ecologies Graduate Program (The New Shcool), has been envisioned as a tool to inform community members about the housing condition (and crisis) in New York City, and to propose community-based strategies to generate development without displacement in districts as Bushwick. At the event attendees will recieve A Right to Housing gazette. The 48 page publication illustrates some of the changes in the district, as well as relevant information about Bushwick, including a vacancy survey!

This mapping exercise documented all the vacancies of the district in the spring 2013. Since then some of these properties have been sold, developed, rehabilitated or demolished. Are the new units for people or profit? In order to track these changes a participatory mapping has been planned, JOIN US! we will also map new luxury developments, WE NEED YOU!

Afterwards, join us for an open house and cold drinks at The Silent Barn, a local art, music, and community Space. This is a great opportunity to explore our streets with neighbors, contribute to community data, and enjoy some of Bushwick’s Community spaces.

your neighbor,
brigette
