Join us for this exciting course catered to inspire both long term and newcomer village builders alike! We will give you our best practices toolkit for changemaking in the commons.

This will enable us to weave together an international village building movement. We will bring the village alive through interactivities, dynamic and thought-provoking conversations, while sharing practical tools and strategies.

Let's come together to look at tangible and practical ways that we can create positive change, starting in our own communities, with strategies to effect wider societal change.

In this two day workshop, the City Repair core team will give you an overview of ways to transform spaces in to places to help cities and town thrive ecologically and socially.

We will explore topics like:

How urban design, sense of place, ecological, and social fabric intersect.

Reclaiming the commons, and re-indigenizing our relationship to place.

Public art as an expression of shared inspiration.

Natural building, permaculture, and pollinator gardening.

Effecting poltical change at a local level.

How project ideas you have can get implemented this year as part of the Village Building Convergence's Placemaking Program.

How City Repair's work can connect with allied organizations and movements, in Portland and beyond, in any place in the world.

Mark Lakeman, Founder of City Repair and Communitecture Architecture and Planning firm.
