House of the Commons was a four day event on the housing crisis, specifically focusing on Oxford, but with a UK outlook. T/D worked alongside the local community in coordinating the event, held in Oxford in October 2015. With an exciting lineup of speakers, workshops and skill-shares examining the current context and drivers of the crisis, the aim was to explore creative solutions to these problems.
HotC was a participatory event, with a focus on self-organisation for practical action at many levels and open to all people wanting to find out more about our current housing situation. Many projects were seeded as a result of impassioned conversation.
The next House of the Commons will be held in Oxford on 21st-23rd October. You can find details and buy tickets at www.houseofthecommons.org
