Nimble Spaces – Ways to Live Together: New Cultures of Housing

1.05.2015
9.30am – 5.30pm

Nimble Spaces, Camphill Communities of Ireland, VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art, Maynooth University Department of Geography and DIT, Dublin School of Architecture

An international conference exploring participative design, spatial justice, social housing, co- housing and new ways to imagine housing in the 21st Century. Are you someone with particular housing needs? Are you an architect, designer, researcher, artist, student, activist?  Are you a group or an association of people who are tackling a particular housing issue? Are you a policy maker?  Do you work supporting people around their housing needs? Are you interested in shared living?  Are you interested in rethinking our town centres and rural landscapes as supportive living places?  Let’s think collectively. 

The conference coincides with a presentation of film, images, and research materials from Nimble Spaces: Enabling Design, documenting long term collaborations between artists, architects and adults with a disability, considering ‘home’ and shared living. Participating artists, architects and filmmaker include Rhona Byrne, Paul Bokslag, LiD Architecture, Eamon Little, Meme Architecture, Jennie Moran, Ríonach Ní Néill and Studio Weave. Developed by Commonage in association with Camphill Communities of Ireland and funded through an Arts Council Arts Participation Project Award.
