Thursday, January 29th at 6:30pm is City Repair’s monthly Village Pollinators Night. An event that honors communities for transforming urban space into a common gathering place ultimately creating a healthy, safer and happier neighborhood. This month, Rebecca Stavenjord, from Multnomah County Health Department will discuss her department’s community health initiatives with members of the participating communities. The event will feature a short presentation from Rebecca Stavenjord and other 'Village Pollinators," of Killingsworth Court and Borthwick, about her group's Intersection Repair project during last year’s Village Building Convergence - Portland. They will be presenting about the history of their neighborhood, how the neighborhood mobilized and created the Big Bang Of Peace intersection mural to mourn and connect over gang violence that has plagued the area. The The Mash Tun Brewpub has kindly offered to host us upstairs and will be donating a portion of food and drink sales to City Repair. Mark Lakeman, the co-founder of The City Repair Project, will be introducing the speaker with a few words of about his experience with the Big Bang Of Peace. After the presentation, audience members interested in hosting a community placemaking project will be invited to ask Rebecca any questions they may have. The Executive Director of The City Repair Project, Marc Tobin, will be playing acoustic guitar after the presentation! Community placemaking project applications will be on hand for folks who are interested in becoming a Village Pollinators themselves! City Repair has been building stronger communities through grassroots led public art and natural building for over 15 years from the Sunnyside Sunflower to the Syracuse intersection in St. John’s. Please invite your friends, family and neighbors to join you. Thank you!
