This year, Social Planning is supporting the Cowichan Housing Association to create an Attainable Housing Strategy. We are conducting interviews on the current state of housing in the region and would greatly appreciate your input.
We are looking for voices that reflect the entire range of the housing continuum, as well as professionals whose business may be affected by housing conditions. The interviews are intended to be short stories from your personal or professional perspective in which we will simply be asking you to share your story.
The purpose of the interviews is to create a series of short videos illustrating the current range of housing needs in the community, as well as the areas of complexity and ideas for solutions. These videos will then be posted on social media and played at events for the community as an awareness and education tool.
Contact us to arrange an interview time or video your story on your phone or ipad (make sure you are in a quiet location for the best audio and send us the link. Camera shy but want to have your story heard? Send us your housing story in writing, with a photo of you, your family or a simple location photo if you would like to have your identify protected.
