Do you see the street intersection paintings around town, benches made of earth, or food forests? This event will explore such sights and discuss how communities design and install the projects through the City Repair Project. This is a great event if you want to do such a project in your community or if you want to learn about how to volunteer with City Repair!

City Repair facilitates artistic and ecologically-oriented placemaking through projects that honor the interconnection of human communities and the natural world. The many projects of City Repair have been accomplished by a mostly volunteer staff and thousands of volunteer citizen activists. We provide support, resources, and opportunities to help diverse communities reclaim the culture, power, and joy that we all deserve.

The intersections between race and place pose unique challenges and opportunities for us to build upon. Cultivating access to power in place is something that we are learning and re-learning to do here at City Repair.

We are calling for this gathering of POC placemakers for us to share tools, resources, strategies and needs for us to thrive in our communities and in our places. For us to co-create a brave space to talk about the intersections of race and place and how we can leverage our resources collectively to build place-based empowerment.

Appetizers will be provided!
