Tiny Home Village Education Outreach and Speaker Forum July 19

07/18/2017

Tiny home village coordinators are pleased to announce the next presenter in the educational outreach and speaker forum series.

Debbie Johnson, a healthcare professional with over twenty years of experience and the founder of TenderLove Community Center, will discuss individual empowerment through skills-building and micro-industries. Johnson will share her experiences with working and teaching the unhoused and low income in the community.

Wednesday, July 19
5:30 – 7 p.m.
Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice, Peace Hall202 Harvard Dr. SE

Experts say skills-building and establishing micro-industries within the tiny home village project is key to breaking the cycle of homelessness. Learning a skill set empowers the residents to create a better, stable, and self-sufficient future for themselves.

Coordinating volunteer efforts and providing a project update are also on the forum’s agenda.

This is the second in a series of educational and speaker forums taking place over the next couple of months.

Last November, voters approved a $2 million general obligation bond to fund the development of the tiny home village project. For more information about the tiny home village project, please visit www.bernco.gov/tinyhomevillage.

Live streaming of the forum will be available on the county’s Facebook account, Bernalillo County NM.

  • Art Along the Rio Grande: Experience Nature Through the Artists' Lens is a visual exploration of the ecological and cultural richness of the South Valley’s Valle de Oro Wildlife Refuge. The exhibit is a joint project of the Refuge, Gutiérrez Hubbell House, Friends of Valle de Oro, Hubbell House Alliance, and Bernalillo County Public Art. Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge is the Southwest’s first urban refuge, located in the South Valley, just a few miles south of downtown Albuquerque. The refuge is in the process of restoring a former dairy farm back to a mosaic of native New Mexico habitats in order to provide an oasis for wildlife as well as an abundance of education and recreation opportunities for the community. The exhibit showcases the work of local artists in diverse mediums. For the past 7 years, photographers of all ages and skill levels have been invited to participate in an annual photo contest hosted by the refuge, to capture images of the refuge's wildlife, landscapes and people. This exhibit will feature the winning images from the 2019 photo contest, highlighting the refuge this past year as it begins restoration. Sketches and images from the Fall 2019 field mural project featuring 5 women muralists will be on display at GHH. The murals can still be seen at the Refuge, while sketches, photos, and other works reflect the goals and processes of the artists. Artwork by local Artist Wren Walraven, will also be featured. Wren’s artwork content comes from her personal experiences with wildlife, her passion for those animals and the magical desert scenery. Join us in this celebration of the South Valley’s environmental beauty, creativity, and community connections.
