What are the benefits of living in a house with a footprint no larger than a parking space? What would it take to make the tiny home movement – well, big? Join us for a film and discussion on Thursday, March 3rd at Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists’ Hall. A screening of “Tiny: A Story About Living Small” will be followed by a panel discussion led by members of Tiny House In My BackYard (THIMBY), an interdisciplinary collaboration of UC Berkeley students designing and building a zero-net-energy tiny house on the Berkeley Global Campus. Other participants on the panel include tiny home builders and residents, co-housing members, architects, and mobile tiny home owners.
About the film:
“The film follows one couple’s attempt to build a “tiny house” from scratch, and profiles other families who have downsized their lives into homes smaller than the average parking space. TINY is a story for a society redefining its priorities in the face of a changing financial and environmental climate. More than anything, TINY invites its viewers to dream big and imagine living small.”
Potluck snacks and meet and greet at 6:30pm; film at 7pm, followed by discussion. Get your tickets ahead of time here, or just drop in!
