An online symposium co-sponsored by the

Sorrento Centre and Empire Remixed

…with the support of the Anglican Church of Canada

and the Anglican Dioceses of Toronto and New Westminster


The Symposium:

The recent publication of A Sort of Homecoming: Essays Honoring the Academic and Community Work of Brian Walsh (Pickwick, 2020) brought together a rich array of essays organized around the themes of home, homelessness and homecoming. This four-part symposium seeks to deepen the discussion of home-making and housing. In the face of a systemic homelessness that has economic, social, public health, ecological and cultural manifestations, how might we develop more holistic and integrated policies and practices for deeper homefulness in our communities?

Who is this for?

Housing workers, advocates, activists, people with direct experience of housing insecurity and homelessness, board members, shelter staff, architects, developers, faith leaders, faith members, politicians, investors, etc.


Four presenters each evening, with moderated break-out room discussions with each presenter.

Cost: $40.00 for the four sessions, or $15.00 per single evening.
