HOUSING IS A HUMAN RIGHT is an ongoing documentary portrait of the struggle for home.
We create a space for people to share stories of their community and ongoing experiences trying to obtain or maintain a place to call Home. We are building a collection of intimate, viscerally honest narratives exploring the complex fabric of community and the human right to housing and land.
Stories are recorded in sound in the tradition of oral history. They are presented as audio stories, photographs and multimedia through public exhibitions & broadcasts via traditional and new media outlets.
Housing is a Human Right accepts commissions to record stories and develop content for exhibitions, campaigns, organizations and institutions. email us at info (@) housingisahumanright.org.
“Housing is not just a roof; it’s not just walls. It’s much more than that. Housing must have a community attached to it, and a territory. A territory where people can have access to the means of livelihood–to land, to water, to resources, to sources of income–and not only being sheltered somewhere.”
-Raquel Rolnick, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Adequate Housing
