Lack of housing and the social housing crisis affects more and more layers of society. In practice, there is no coherent housing strategy in Budapest - the small number of affordable state- or city-owned apartments available decreases each year. Rents have recently jumped 50-100 percent. The project aimed at generating publicity about social housing. The organizers would raise attention to the problems, causes and interrelated effects of the crisis, to clarify the issue for a wider audience. They created a ‘pop-up’ street-TV studio in busier intersections and public spaces in Józsefváros (8th disctrict). The invited guests and willing passers-by were able to discuss and dig deeper into the issue. These live shows were then edited into a series of short videos presenting various sides of the problem. The organizers projected these in spontaneous street screenings at the locations where the videos were shot and others. After that, they will show them in clubs, coffee shops and other various settings like film clubs, community meetings and cultural festivals. The organizers will specifically invite homeless individuals, artists, and residents of the homeless shelter in Vajdahunyad utca to participate. They also worked with homeless artists and activists of the Citiy Belongs to All. The primary audience was the general local population of arbitrary age and background but with the location in common. The secondary audience is the group of viewers of the videos - a broad range of audiences specific to each location.
