Please join us at Burning Man HQ for an evening of lively discussion focused on building community through group living arrangements.

Building Community Through Cooperative Living
When:  Thursday, April 17th, 7-9pm
Where:  Burning Man HQ, 660 Alabama, San Francisco, CA

Cooperative living arrangements have been popular in the U.S. for decades. These arrangements take many forms, from low-income options, such as squatter warehouses and affordable housing co-ops, to those requiring more capital, such as resident-designed cohousing developments. Faced with increasing home prices, the rise of the ‘sharing economy’, and a renewed focus on the importance of human connection, individuals are turning to cooperative living environments across the Bay Area and beyond.

This panel will bring together Burners from a range of cooperative living situations to talk about their experiences—the benefits, the challenges, and the cultural consequences of creating and living in shared spaces. Our panelists will explore what it is about cooperative living they find compelling, and what elements are important in building vibrant community.

Panelists:
Raines Cohen, East Bay Cohousing
Nicole Sawaya, Project Artaud
JT Yu, Cooperative Roots
Jessy Kate Schingler, Open Door Development Group
