ACORN’s outreach model, using door-to-door and promoting tenant involvement through working groups, is unique and has proven its effectiveness through the identification of fundamental issues that tenants face on a regular basis. Collective work enables solutions to be put in place and guarantees a deep commitment from the latter. This model is particularly fruitful for highlighting the issues affecting the most vulnerable tenants and for developing their leadership in establishing solutions.

The artworks are not linked to the Acorn project directly, but the generosity of the artists is greatly appreciated.
