VBC 2018 and Past Placemaking Projects
Community-Driven Art and Sustainability Projects
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. The sites included in the map will be installing community enhancements mainly between June 1st and June 10th, 2018. Participation is free, family friendly, and welcome! Help raise the barn! Exact installations dates will be set by mid-May. For more info contact Kirk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Neighbors, community organizers 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. Previous installations gallery click here.
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. No experience is required and this is an amazing free opportunity to learn earthen building techniques! Previous installations gallery click here.
Throughout the city, City Repair will host demonstration sites and workshops on urban food gardens, ecological restoration, and designs using permaculture. Prepare to get your hands dirty! Many of our garden sites are focusing on pollinator habitat creation. You can visit parking strips to community gardens, from urban farms to food forests! Previous installations gallery click here.
