This is an evening talk with Dr. Max Holleran (University of Melbourne) about the growing Yes In My Backyard (YIMBY) housing movement in North America. Join us for a fun and thought-provoking conversation about YIMBYs, and the causes – and solutions – to the current affordable housing crisis in Toronto and beyond.
5:30 – 6:00 | Pre-Talk Social and Trivia
Come by for a pre-talk social with pizza and kombucha (millennial favourites!). We will also be holding a YIMBY trivia game with a chance to win a signed copy of Max’s book.
6:00 – 7:00 | Book Talk and Q&A
Max will speak about his book and take questions from the audience.
7:00 – 7:30 | Mingle and Meet the Author
This event is hosted by a Manchester-Melbourne-Toronto Research Partnership & the University of Toronto School of Cities City Visions Book Series.
