The Village Building Convergence Request for Proposals are here!
Dear Portland community and beyond,
The City Repair Project is proud to announce that we are now accepting proposals for community building projects for the 12th annual 10-day Village Building Convergence (VBC) held from May 25th -June 3rd 2012!
Every year City Repair helps many communities around the greater Portland area gather their community together to collectively transform the uncultivated spaces that surround them into rich vibrant gathering places that strengthen the community. City Repair facilitates this “place-making” activity of transforming “spaces” into “places” year-round, but it is during the annual Village Building Convergence that most of the place-making activity takes place. Whether it’s an intersection repair project, an outdoor classroom, a covered bench, neighborhood garden, or more, we welcome all ideas and would love to help turn your vision into reality.
Anyone interested in doing some form of community-oriented placemaking project during the VBC is welcomed and encouraged to submit a Request For Proposal (RFP). Everyone that submits a RFP by the January 27th 2012 deadline will automatically be accepted to join our planning process in which the place-making team will provide in-depth, weekly training and support to help your project succeed with flying colors. Even if you have no idea what you’d like to see happen in your neighborhood or community, please feel free to peruse and fill out the RFP form and we will be more than happy to help you get the ball rolling, the sparks flying, and the under-utilized space transforming into a vibrant welcoming place!!!
Please read from the following link completely and fill out the application by January 27, 2012.
Please share this with anyone that you think might be interested!
If you have any questions at all, ask away, we’re here for you!
Meet your neighbors, build your dreams!
Placemaking Coordinator: Hannah Poirier, 541 419 6723
