Documentary of first World Indigenous Housing Conference to be screened at various film festivals

The after-effects are ongoing from the first ever World Indigenous Housing Conference (WIHC) which was held in Vancouver this past June. The event saw experts from Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand share their views and experience in the field and the talks have been recorded in an exciting new documentary which will be screened at the Sundance, American Indian and various other artistic film festivals internationally.

A website - the Indigenous Housing Gateway - has also been set up to keep attendees in touch to brainstorm ideas and share their knowledge, and presentations from the Conference will be posted online for the benefit of those who were able to attend.

Andrew Leach, Director of the WIHC and CEO of the Aboriginal Housing Management Association, explains: “We’re thrilled so many leaders from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United States shared their stories at this historic event. Thanks to everyone who attended – the speakers, performers, sponsors and delegates - together we’ve launched a movement to build greater Indigenous housing capacity around the world.”
