Reclaim your housing – Housing Co-operatives talk at UEA.
This event is a talk about what housing cooperatives are; how to set one up and a chance to meet people who already have the experience of creating and living in a radical housing cooperative.
There will be information, plenty of opportunity to ask questions and, if we get lucky, cake.
The event is being run by Nautia (yes, pronounced naughtier), a housing co-operative in the North of Norwich that has provided housing for people working for social change for the last decade – http://www.nautia.org.uk/
Nautia is a member of Radical Routes, a national network of housing co-ops and worker co-ops – www.radicalroutes.org.uk
The principle aim of the co-operative is to provide secure, tenant-managed housing for its members. Tenant management allows us to choose how to run or modify the house without interference from landlords – essentially D.I.Y. social housing.
We currently house five people and would like to find more like-minded people with a view to buying a larger property, hence are seeking new members.
Come along if you want to learn more about setting up housing co-ops, Radical Routes and possibly getting involved with Nautia.
This workshop is also taking place on Tuesday 1st February at 7pm downstairs in The Workshop Cafe Bar, 53 Earlham Road, Norwich, NR2 3AD see Facebook event http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=171507382894479
