Housing is a Human Right
Artist Files Fellow
Rachel Falcone and Michael Premo are the co-founders of Housing is a Human Right, an art project that uses creative storytelling to create an ongoing documentary portrait of the struggle for home. Falcone and Premo interview people about their community and experiences trying to obtain or maintain a home, and collect these oral histories as well as photographs and multimedia. So far, they have recorded more than a hundred stories in New York, Philadelphia, New Orleans, and South Africa. These narratives describe community and the human right to housing and land, and compose a living portrait of human rights that is both poignant portraiture and effective activism.
