The recent publication of A Sort of Homecoming: Essays Honoring the Academic and Community Work of Brian Walsh (Pickwick, 2020) brought together a rich array of essays organized around the themes of home, homelessness and homecoming. This four-part symposium seeks to deepen the discussion of home-making and housing. In the face of a systemic homelessness that has economic, social, public health, ecological and cultural manifestations, how might we develop more holistic and integrated policies and practices for deeper homefulness in our communities?
Who is this for?
Housing workers, advocates, activists, people with direct experience of housing insecurity and homelessness, board members, shelter staff, architects, developers, faith leaders, faith members, politicians, investors, etc.
