Bealtaine, Create and the Irish Architecture Foundation are delighted to deliver the third and final conference in this series which explores how collaborative and interdisciplinary arts practice engages with key issues impacting on our rights to adequate housing, public space and cultural lives as we get older. This is not my Beautiful House III takes the concept of hospitality as its philosophical point of departure. It could be said that the purest form of hospitality hinges on an attempt to create equal status for both the host and hosted. If we take the host to mean societies and the hosted to mean citizens we can understand the need to create hospitable spaces that adapt to our needs as we age. The event is aimed at policy makers, researchers, architects, artists planners, community workers and older people active in housing issues as well as the general public.
