Working with a local community in Sao Paulo, Alice facilitated a workshop to make a Brazilian version of the LSI’s beautiful courtyard bench.Alice and Tim also visited a project supporting women in favelas to build their own houses.During the talk, we will explore what we can learn from these inspiring initiatives, as we face our own crisis of affordable housing.Following the talk there will be a discussion of how we can link together the skills of local builders and makers, the sustainable materials available locally and the energy of the local community to create the affordable housing that West Dorset needs.
