It Takes a Community to Raise a Village

Presentation by Andrew Heben

This 50-minute slide presentation by SquareOne Villages project director, Andrew Heben, provides an inspiring overview of the village model—combining research from his Tent City Urbanism book with an on-the-ground journey into which the rest of us our invited.

The "It Takes a Community to Raise a Village" presentation covers the founding of two models for bridging the existing gap between the street and traditional housing options—Opportunity Village and Emerald Village—with the hopes of providing inspiration on how your local community can raise a successful tiny house village.

The material for this presentation was developed over the course of two years following the release of Tent City Urbanism, and has been delivered to crowds of up to 300 people in places such as:

  • Chico, CA

In an effort to bring this content to even more cities, SquareOne Villages is making the presentation available here in a downloadable video format, with the option of combining the presentation with a 40-minute live Q&A (via Skype or similar)—perfect for viewing with a group to help energize an initiative in your local community.

All money raised goes directly to SquareOne Villages' efforts to advance the village model for people in need of safe and affordable housing.
