Oct 11, 2017 event INHABIT with Molly Larkey, LATCH, & At Home
Artist Molly Larkey, LATCH Collective, and At Home Housing joined together to organize an event for tiny house and community living enthusiasts. At the event, participants wrote down their vision for a community, and what questions they had about getting there. We did all this in the midst of the INHABIT exhibit by Molly Larkey, at the Ochi Projects space in mid-city Los Angeles. The exhibit had engaging, interactive, and inspiring pieces. The space was the perfect setting for great conversations about what we want to build in our lives.
Visions that people wrote down included tiny house villages, artist residences, affordable and cooperative housing, space for gardening and sharing meals. Additionally, participants could see a place where everyone was valued, where they could work toward their goals, and co-create.
There were many common questions: where can we do this? How can we finance it? Who is involved? LATCH Collective, Reworking Hope, and At Home provided information and cited many resources we can continue to develop in future workshops. Discussion groups talked about the questions raised, in themes of social values and governance, economics, and design.
Topics the group wanted to pursue further included group decision-making styles and types, a design charrette, and a library of examples and possibilities.
