The 12th annual Village Building Convergence (VBC), a ten-day placemaking festival that combines crowdsourced activism, creative community development, hands-on education and celebration, takes place in Portland from May 25 through June 3, 2012.
We will come together to create benches, community kiosks, gardens, street paintings, tile mosaics, and more! Come join your neighbors as they bring to life the natural building, permaculture, and public art projects that they’ve been planning. Learn valuable skills for urban sustainability and social regeneration while celebrating the creativity and diversity of our wonderful city!
This event is hosted by City Repair, an organized group action that educates and inspires communities and individuals to creatively transform the places where they live.
During the day, participants have the opportunity to participate, for free, in creative, community designed placemaking projects all over town.
