Join us on Tuesday, November 25th at 6:30pm for our very first Village Founders Night at the Green Dragon Bistro and Pub. The event will be featuring a fifteen minute presentation from Chrissy Mulkey and Chip Reese, the placemaking coordinators of Sunnyside Piazza, from last year's Village Building Convergence about their project. They will be presenting about the history of the Sunnyside Piazza, how the neighborhood mobilized and transformed into a village and the benefits and the realities of living in communities. Mark Lakeman will be introducing these lovely speakers with a few words of his own about his experience with Sunnyside Piazza. After the presentation, audience members interested in hosting a placemaking site will be invited to ask Chrissy and Chip any questions they may have. Placemaking applications will be on hand for folks to take home and start mobilizing their neighbors! The Green Dragon has kindly donated a keg of beer that City Repair supporters can purchase a pint for $5. All beer proceeds will go to City Repair. The Executive Director of City Repair, Marc Tobin, will be performing acoustic guitar tunes after the presentation. Please invite your friends and future village members.

City Repair's Village Building Convergence (VBC) is an annual ten-day placemaking festival that combines crowdsourced activism, creative community development, hands-on education and celebration. Our mission is to facilitate an annual collaboration and cross pollination of neighbors, groups, and civic partnerships to transform our city through village life patterns, education, and placemaking projects. This culminates in a 10 day springtime celebration.
