Nelson co-housing group brings ‘Happy’ to Civic Theatre

On July 27 the Civic Theater will be showing the documentary Happy at 2 p.m. This joyful and touching film is sponsored by the Nelson Co-Housing Project.

Happy takes us on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the co-housing communities of Denmark to the slums of Kolkata in search of what really makes people happy. Combining real life stories of people from around the world and powerful interviews with the leading scientists in happiness research, Happy explores the secrets behind our most valued emotion.

The Nelson Co-Housing Project is sponsoring this film to raise awareness and excitement of the many gifts of living in community. This committed group of

Kootenay folks has been working for three years to build a local co-housing community. In February they purchased a beautiful 24-acre property at 6 Mile. Next spring they will begin building 24 homes and a common house consciously designed to foster community.

Co-housing is a type of collaborative housing in which residents actively participate in the design and operation of their own neighbourhoods and are consciously committed to living as a community. This lifestyle also encourages an ethic of sustainability and living lighter on the land.

The Nelson Co-Housing Project is still looking for additional members to share in this vision, and will be providing a short presentation about this project before the movie showing.
