Indie On Wheels

Opens on June 11


Run Time: 120 min.

5:45 PM  June 11, 2024
at Sugar Creek Library

Join The Independent Picture House and Sugar Creek Library on Tuesday, June 11 from 5:45pm to 8pm at the library for a screening of the award winning documentary ‘A Decent Home’ (2022).

‘A Decent Home’ is a documentary about manufactured homes in America. Focused on how these last vestiges of affordable housing are facing trials as rich landowners raise rent and evict them from the land they rent, but do not own. This is a topic the Charlotte community, as well as other cities throughout the county, faces every day.

Indie on Wheels will include a screening of the documentary followed by an audience discussion with YWCA Central Carolinas‘ Rebecca Stickel, LCSW and Pivot Point Transitional Housing’s Barry Shipp. As Director of Housing, Rebecca oversees the Women In Transition program and Families Together program. YWCA’s housing programs provide safe, affordable housing and intensive support services for families and women facing homelessness in Charlotte. This is a free community event. Barry Shipp is the Founder and CEO of Pivot Point Transitional Housing, a Charlotte-based nonprofit that builds safe, supportive, dignified places as a “pivot point” for achieving more productive, satisfying, and self-directed lives. 

This program is sponsored by Culture Blocks— a community partnership between ASC, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation to bring arts and cultural experiences closer to where  residents live. Culture Blocks is funded by Mecklenburg County.

Address: 4045 North Tryon Street, Suite A, Charlotte, NC 28206
Time: 5:45 pm – 8:00 pm
