It s clear there s a housing crisis, and it s also clear we all want to help fix it. After participating in a lot of local story-circles and conversations on the subject, artists from Touchstone Theatre in Bethlehem and nationally known community engagement expert ashley sparks noticed something. When asked, What do you want the Lehigh Valley to look like in 2050 no one could really say. So . An idea was hatched:

What if stakeholders, advocates, civil servants, social service providers, and artists got together and imagined a future where we get the housing piece of the puzzle right here in the Lehigh Valley. What could that look like?
