PEOPLE + PROPERTY: Uncovering Housing Inequities
From May through October of 2017, the HLP People + Property series will focus on race and ethnicity as related to issues of vacant housing. We’ll explore this through six key themes: history, space, wellness, equity, movement, and change via community conversations (see the HLP calendar for the dates/times). As an extension of each conversation, the HLP has invited writers and artists to generate creative work that explores the complexity of the issues and generates new perspectives and questions. These cultural works, informed by personal knowledge, collective experience and ongoing research, will be shared with the diverse public via events and exhibitions at the HLP site and beyond.
A series inspired and supported by the Indiana Humanities INCommon Grant, part of the NEH’s Humanities and the Legacy of Race and Ethnicity initiative.
