Housing the Dream II

On 30 November 2018, Shelter WA began an ambitious project. It brought together people to task them with a dream scenario. If you were to have no hinderance or impediments what would be the ingredients needed to make an effective housing system for all?

Eagerly thoughts and scenarios were placed down on paper by the participants.

But in the next part of the session, the real work began. As Shelter WA Consultant, Advocacy and Policy Lisa Kazalac put it, “The aspirational vision you created, how are we going to achieve that in 2050 when we have all of these uncertainties?” she said.

“We might need policy, regulatory changes, I want you to think what the priorities are and how do we change the current system to achieve our aspirational vision and provide solutions.”

Given the challenge the groups went back to work to navigate pitfalls which could come in the way of achieving their housing dream.

Since that first session both Lisa Kazalac and Shelter WA Policy Officer, Klaudia Mierswa consolidated all the thoughts and ideas into a shared vision. This was done by analysing every piece of input and comment, categorising them and then identifying themes which were grouped and organised.

It was in this follow-up Housing the Dream workshop session the consolidated vision was articulated, and further feedback was invited.

Klaudia Mierswa in her presentation outlined the following.

What is your vision of an effective housing system?
• Through the analysis of your input, seven themes emerged on how your effective housing system should look like.

...

G. WA context
• Finally, an effective housing system should consider the special characteristics of Western Australia, it should be tailored to work for all, metro-regional and remote.

Shelter WA will continue to seek feedback on the Housing the Dream consolidated vision through a Regional WA roll out which will take place this year.
