👻 The rental situation in Greater Victoria is scary 👻. The vacancy rate is frighteningly low & students can’t find the accommodation they need - & when they do, those accommodations can be downright #spooky .
Fear not: the UVSS is lobbying the BC Government on the haunting issue of affordable housing!
During the month of October, we are also running a Facebook contest to see who has the scariest rental horror story of all!
Facebook message the #UVSS with your rental horror story (sleeping in cars & couches, bad landlords, illegal rental terms, mold, vampire roommates, you name it). We’ll put them up & the story with the most likes & shares by the end of October wins $100 Save-On-Foods Gift Card
Note: Stories will have names removed to protect the submitter's anonymity, but remaining content will be left intact. Something to think about if you're submitting something *very* specific that you might not want some people to know about.

Curious the new mural in Clearihue? Muralist Kay Gallivan has teamed up with Mexican artist Abraham León Pérez to paint a mural honouring Latin American culture. The artists are depicting traditional Indigenous Mexican textile motifs, including Zapotec flowers and Otomí animals. The mural, which celebrates the relaunched Latin American Studies program, was completed earlier this month. See photos of the mural in progress in our story! 🖌️
Gallivan, whose past work includes painting murals in Victoria’s North Park neighbourhood, said she was first introduced to muralism while visiting Ecuador and Mexico as part of her studies at UVic. Gallivan studied history, Spanish and Latin American Studies and credits her experience at UVic with stoking her interest in an art form that has taken her all over the world. “Painting this mural helps me reflect on and celebrate how Latin American Studies helped me find a career I’m passionate about,” she says. #uvic

These past few weeks have been SO magical ✨ I couldn’t stop staring and smiling at the end results of this mural.
First off, I’m beyond grateful to have been financially supported by those who believed in my dreams of creating a large-scale community mural, so s/o to the UVic Student Activity Grant and the Victoria Visual Arts Legacy Society Bursary for the opportunity💗
Nothing makes me happier than seeing how art can spark so much joy and love in our lives. But what I love the most about art is its ability to bring people—from all walks of life—together. I love how this project was able to give so many artists a platform to share their art with others. Thank you to: @stayashlih and @z.tolcyo for sharing their music and being the best dj’s, @muza.warrior and @punpun_je for blessing us with their beautiful songs, @tishannas for feeding our bellies with your delicious food, @simone.littledale @matthew_garcia_thats_me @jennagrossman4 @reginaelizondo7 @devinweber @luluuuuuzzl for being amazing workshop facilitators, @kaygallivan for coming to speak about your work as a muralist, @eriqone for collaborating with me on the beginning designs of the mural, and @jspvisuals for capturing all of the workshop’s moments on camera. This project would be nothing without the people who made it all possible 👌🏽 #uvic#thefacesofourcommunity
