Between 1958 and 1968 a developer quietly purchased most of the properties in Montreal’s Milton-Parc, with the aim of a redeveloping this downtown, working-class neighbourhood. In November 1968, residents formed the Milton-Parc Citizens Committee to organize against the possibility of eviction, thereby forming the largest cooperative housing project on a land trust in North America, which today is home to over 1500 citizens. The Committee organized a demonstration in May 1972, resulting in the arrest of fifty-nine protesters and galvanizing resistance to the redevelopment project.
Join us for an evening of conversation with citizens who participated in this action. The event will begin at 6:30pm, before which guests are welcome to have a drink and browse the new hallcase exhibition Milton Parc: How we did it.
Attendance to this event is free and open to all.
Free, fully insured childcare is available for kids three years and up who can use the washroom independently, from 6:00pm to 8:30pm. Offered in collaboration with The Lion and The Mouse.
