On April 1st, one of several events for April is Fair Housing Month will be taking place. Inside of Burlington’s City Hall, 148 Church St., just outside of the Contois auditorium entrance, from 5:00pm – 7:00pm, the following activities are scheduled:
The Mayor of Burlington, and Burlington City Council President, Joan Shannon, will deliver proclamations of this April, as Fair Housing Month for Burlington, Vermont.
Jazz a cappella songs will be performed by the Calloway Taxi singers;
An art exhibit in the City Hall Gallery will be opening: “A PLACE CALLED HOME.” The exhibition features the work of four women artists – Anne Cummings, Winnie Looby, Lyna Lou Nordstrom, and Deborah Sharpe-Lunstead, each demonstrating a different perspective of what home means through their creative process.
Many other projects related to Fair Housing Month will be taking place during the month across Burlington & Winooski. The hope is that this will become an annual event that will expand beyond Chittenden County! For the most up-to-date information on events see the HeArt & Home Facebook Page here.
