Cohousing: Building Resilient Neighborhoods with Kathryn McCamant and Charles Durrett

Kathryn McCamant

Hosted by the Nashville Civic Design Center, this event is free and open to National Cohousing Conference Participants and the general public.
Thursday, May 18, 6:00 pm (doors open at 5:30 pm) at the Neuhoff Complex, 1315 Adams Street, Nashville, TN, 37208 (1.5 miles from the Millennium Maxwell House Hotel).

Join us for a presentation by two acclaimed cohousing experts, Kathryn McCamant of CoHousing Solutions and Charles Durrett of The Cohousing Company. As the architects who brought the concept over from Europe in the 1980’s, Kathryn and Charles will provide a brief history of the cohousing movement, then expand upon the modern-day resilience of these resident-initiated neighborhoods. Cohousing thrives in both urban and rural contexts, offering the privacy of your own fully-furnished home paired with extensive common amenities. These communities offer a variety of home sizes, fitting for the budgets of singles, couples and families. Cohousing allows seniors to successfully and safely age-in-community while parents receive unparalleled neighborly support in raising children. Learn how 160+ built communities are paving the way for a growing interest in cohousing’s potential: to enhance sustainable living by bringing to life the sharing economy on a neighborhood scale. There will be time for audience questions after the presentation. Those interested in learning more about cohousing should take advantage of a wealth of related sessions being offered at the National Cohousing Conference in town this same weekend, May 19-21.
