Landlords raise rents at their will and get away with not lifting a finger to repair problems tenants are having in properties – even when they’re life-threatening. From Monday 16 March to Wednesday 18 March, Langdale Gallery are working with Generation Rent to host a three-day event to raise awareness about the renting crisis, give people tools to fight back and create a safe space for discussion about housing.

Langdale Gallery is a tenant led campaign open to those experiencing housing issues, and provides the safe space and the materials for community arts and action.
They are calling for residents, artists, musicians, writers to drop in and make art about the renting crisis or tell their story about what home means to them, any time from 1pm until 10pm at the performance space in Islington Mill from Monday March 16th – Wednesday March 18th.
On the final evening of the event live music from Kolo Tamam will play us out.
Art works from the Campaign will be added to the gallery at Piccadilly Place as part of the LifeShare art exhibition from April 11th- 16th.
The campaign continues at St Chrysostoms Church during the Victoria Park Festival in May through to June.
