This year, we are pleased to partner with the Schein Foundation to present the 2019-2020 Roddan Lectures, dedicated to conversations on the affordable housing crisis in and beyond Vancouver. This year’s lectures cover topics related to gentrification, corporatization, inclusion, planning, and resistance, with speakers from the U.S., Quebec, and Vancouver.

Cost to attend is $10 per person or pay what you can – no one will be turned away for lack of funds. We recommend registering in advance to reserve your spot and so we may communicate with you in the unlikely event there are changes to an event’s time and place.
