The Rent is Too Damn High

Wed, 05 Oct, 06:30pm
Club Greenslopes, 131 Ridge St, Greenslopes, Brisbane

Queensland is in a cost-of-living crisis like we haven’t seen in decades. Families are struggling to make ends meet, with rising costs of rent, fuel and groceries. And it’s hitting renters and first home buyers hardest. In Brisbane, in Bundaberg, on the Gold Coast, rents have soared by a record 20% over the last year. Families are living in tents because they can’t find a secure, affordable home. Pensioners are skipping meals because they can’t afford rising rents. Working people are sleeping in their cars because they can’t find an affordable rental. The people who can least afford it are being hit hardest. Register for free ▸ | Facebook event ▸

Event organisers! Musicians! Activists! Do you ever organise a community event, public forum or fundraising gig and find yourself thinking that some of the regulations and processes you’re required to follow are a bit over the top? Which rules are reasonable and necessary? And which rules have been created with larger, for-profit events in mind but perhaps shouldn’t apply to smaller non-profit community events?

Community forum: Preparing high-density communities for the next flood

Sat, 22 Oct, 02:00pm
TBC

The February 2022 floods were devastating for many in our community. Apartment complexes along the river in places like West End, South Brisbane and Kangaroo Point were hit hard, with long power outages, flooded basements, and destroyed internal infrastructure. As climate change intensifies, our community is staring down more frequent and intense flooding events. So as we prepare for another wet summer ahead we want to bring together as many local body corporates as possible to talk about flood readiness in apartments. Join your local representatives, Councillor Jonathan Sriranganathan, State MP Amy MacMahon and Federal MP Max For Griffith for a community forum about what we can do to prepare apartments for the next flood.
