Housing the Future 2.0
September 10 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Creative Santa Fe’s Disruptive Futures Dialogues series generates visionary new approaches to critical issues to drive positive change. Housing the Future 2.0 will address Santa Fe’s housing needs by leveraging the art of storytelling and highlighting real-time innovative solutions to address, and begin to solve, Santa Fe’s affordable housing crisis.
Santa Fe is currently at a 99% rental capacity and lack of affordable housing is one of the most significant obstacles for current residents and economic growth. The city urgently needs as may as 5,000 new rental units and currently builds between 65-100 units per year. We clearly need creative new approaches to tackle this seemingly intractable challenge.
The first portion of the evening will feature three local artist’s responses to select housing stories to illustrate the reality of the Santa Fe housing crisis. Performers include punk rock musician Jessie Deluxe, poet Darryl Lorenzo Wellington, and screenwriters Sam Dabbs and J. Weston Phippen. Following the performances, multiple local and national affordable housing organizations will present their innovative and effective approaches to design, material, and community engagement to create positive and impactful change. Presenters will include:
John Quale from UNM’s ecoMOD
Aaron Resnick from InOurHands.Love (Sulcata Home)
Rusty Smith from Auburn University’s Rural Studio
Omar Hakeem from [bc]workshop
The event will wrap-up with breakout sessions led by experts in the field to create specific roadmaps and action items.
This dialogue is a continuation of Creative Santa Fe’s 2018 Housing the Future event and is in conjunction with the Siler Yard Arts + Creativity Center affordable housing project.
