City Repair’s Village Building “Emergence”
January 31 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10 – $150
For over 20 years The City Repair Project has been supporting communities in reclaiming and taking design ownership over public space, over the space they inhabit. City Repair has accomplished over 700 projects through a mostly volunteer staff, thousands of volunteer citizen activists, and from generous support from businesses and other nonprofits.
We cordially invite you to our Village Building “Emergence” — a night of celebration and gratitude through dinner, music, visual art, and storytelling. We will share our 2018 community impact, and goals for the next placemaking season, which includes an opening presentation from our co-founder, Mark Lakeman. This night is also a fundraiser for the 19th annual Village Building Convergence, a 10-day event where 30 to 50 of the communities that City Repair serves simultaneously install placemaking projects.
Purchasing a ticket includes a nourishing dinner and a seat to watch presentations, storytelling, and live music performances. There will also be herbal elixirs, sweet treats, raffle prizes, City Repair merchandise, local art, and community-supported auction items available for purchase. Ticket prices are based on a sliding-scale, with full tables as an option as well.
Your contributions ensure that City Repair continues to provide support, resources, and opportunities that help diverse communities reclaim the culture, power, and joy that we all deserve.
