Hen House for Rent. For Students.

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 26-03-2014 10:15 | Category: Homelessness

Gent: Kot te huur. Ghent: Hen House for Rent.

A campaign that is difficult to translate because spoken language is being used.
As the agency explains in English:
“For all the homedogs, lovebirds and tasty hens out there: students in Ghent deserve decent dorms with proper sanitation.”

It is a campaign for students in the city of Ghent, and the university in same city in Belgium. For those who are looking for a student room. Because finding a room is a problem every year.
The campaign is also an indictment against slum landlords. It is launched today.

Gent: Kot te huur. Ghent: Doghouse for Rent.

Gent: Kot te huur. Ghent: Dovecot for Rent.
