David Vaisbord (filmmaker, educator, advocate) and Ingrid Steenhuisen (Community advocate and Little Mountain resident) at Community Dialogue at Dodson Centre, just prior to their interview with CBC Radio’s “On The Coast” Friday May 22, 2015.

Following Wednesday’s Keynote address, there were academic sessions Thursday and Friday morning at the University of British Columbia. In addition, on Friday afternoon there was a well attended Community Dialogue at the Dodson Centre (25 East Hastings) from 1pm to 5pm.

If you missed the Media and Art Installation at the Interurban I hope to soon have a few of the 4 Interurban screens streaming on this site, as well as a full length interview with International delegate Anaclaudia Rossbach from Brazil, Regional Adviser for Cities Alliance.  She offers an international perspective on housing difficulties in Canada, as well critique of the last 7 years of the Little Mountain Housing Project.

I also wish all of the delegates a safe journey home and renewed inspiration for their projects around the world.

All for now,
David Vaisbord
