Vancouver Housing Stories is a podcasting mentorship that produced stories touching on housing experiences and policies. Funded by BC Arts Council and VIVO Media Arts, a small team learned audio skills and explored this urgent regional issue: housing.
Information and oral history support comes from Vancouver Tenants Union.
Artists producing the podcast include Maddi Delplain, Jamie-Leigh Gonzales, Helena Krobath, Susan Lu, Tiffany Muñoz, Melissa Roach, Victoria Spooner, and Yijia Zhang.
Mentors included Helena Krobath, a place-based sound artist and VTU volunteer; housing and anti-poverty organizer Kell Gerlings; Alex de Boer (current affairs coordinator) and Madeline Taylor (program manager) of CiTR Radio 101.9 FM; Alexander Kim from Crackdown and Cited podcasts; Kim Villagante aka hiphop artist Kimmortal; and audio engineer, Pietro Sammarco.
