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 2014 and 2016. 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.
We currently have no upcoming HotC planned yet, but you can find information, research findings and talks from previous events at www.houseofthecommons.org
