community-driven art and sustainability projects
More than 40 neighborhoods are participating in hands-on community building projects. Join us at sites throughout the city May 29-June 7!
Placemaking is a multi-layered process within which citizens foster active, engaged relationships to the spaces they inhabit to inspire communal stewardship and lived connection.
Neighbors, religious leaders, and local schools come together to "repair" their intersections. They plan and draw murals then watch their vision come to life during the Village Building Convergence as members of the community paint together.
During the Village Building Convergence, City Repair hosts several workshops on building with cob and straw bale, making rocket stoves, and more natural building techniques.
Throughout the city, City Repair will host demonstration sites and workshops on urban food gardens. Prepare to get your hands dirty!
