Affordable housing is an issue that affects OCADFA members in unique and difficult ways. Artists
have historically struggled to find affordable housing that fits their income and their practice.
More than half our members are contract faculty and earn their income from making art,
teaching and other part time jobs. Access to affordable housing is a core issue that affects our
members’ lives and health. In particular, this is an issue that affects aging artists. OCADFA can
make a difference.

OCADFA is committed to building an alternative to market driven approaches to housing. We
think housing is a human right and everyone deserves an affordable and stable home. This is
why OCADFA will commit to establishing the first OCADFA housing co-op.
