Living Rooms Initiative Lives On

Living Rooms 2021

COVID Safe Spaces - Living Room partnerships project funded by the Canada Healthy Communities Initiatives has come to an end... but it will live on through the two local initiatives Civic Hub Waterloo Region and Kitchener's Festival of Neighbourhoods! We have learned more about safety in a range of communities, beyond COVID safety, namely, physical, cultural, spiritual, emotional, and community safety. Our pop-up spaces were created in collaboration with the SHEN Centre, Peace for All Canada, L'Harmonie Indigenous Garden, Bring on the Sunshine, A Better Tent City, some of the unlikely places for a sofa and a floor lamp to be usual fixtures. Watch the full presentation of the project, and we hope to sit with you on the same sofa soon for an unusual conversation about safe public spaces.
