In 2010, Patti Fraser and Corin Browne responded to the housing crises by creating The Housing Matters Media Project. The project worked with young artists to produce a collection of digital narratives that investigated issues of affordable housing with the intent is to create an informed and active community.
The films produced in this phase of the project have been screened in a variety of venues, locally and internationally to inform and affect housing policy. This project partnered with the University of British Columbia Housing Justice Research Project at housingjustice.ca
