A Right to a Home?

15 October | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

All welcome | Free to attend | First come, first served at the door


‘Home’ means more than a roof over our heads. It can be crucial to our sense of ourselves and our well-being. So what might it mean to have a right to a home? And what is lost when we lose our home? We discuss the politics, philosophy, and poetry of home, exploring the fundamental connection between home and human well-being.
