April 24: Improv-ing the City. Designing Policies through Participative Theatre
Alec Balasescu and Jonathan Bleackley of Civic Renewal Lab, and Jeremy Waller host a role-playing and improv workshop that will explore Vancouver’s development, housing, and affordability policies. Guided by the question, “for whom is the city built?” and borrowing from similar policy-based theatre work, participants will be led in acting out the impact of key housing policies and policy questions, with an interest towards helping residents understand the stakes, opinions and goals of the various players involved, and why finding solutions can be difficult.
