NAVIGATING HOUSING AND STUDIO SPACE FOR ARTISTS: KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
with Artist/Activist Ngoc-Tran Vu and Attorney/Educator Liliana Mangiafico

With the ongoing housing crisis resulting from long-standing class and racial inequities (all exacerbated by the pandemic), it can feel like an impossible task to secure stable, affordable housing or studio space in some communities. But you’re not alone and there are strategies to make the hunt easier. In this interactive workshop, artists will learn about locally relevant housing rights and resources and hear firsthand knowledge about navigating the housing market. This workshop is led by Ngoc-Tran Vu, a 1.5-generation Vietnamese American interdisciplinary and transnational artist whose socially engaged work draws from her experience as a community organizer, educator, and healer. Additional insight provided by specialist Liliana Mangiafico, a Boston-based lawyer and educator focused on eviction/homelessness prevention.

Suitable for artists in all disciplines. Open to artists based in Massachusetts only. BIPOC artists will receive priority consideration.

IN THE TIME OF COVID-19: A VIRTUAL EXHIBITION SERIES OF PHOTOGRAPHIC ART

In partnership with Stable Ground Boston, Violence Transformed is hosting a virtual series of exhbitions featuring photographic art, In The Time of COVID-19. Originally planned to focus on the impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable and housing-insecure communities, we have expanded the theme of the exhibit to include a focus on the dual impact of racism and the pandemic on these same communities, including groups threatened and traumatized by the multiple forces of racism, bigotry, homelessness and housing insecurity, loss of livelihood, and fear of deportation and discrimination.
