Place Justice: making a place for everyone

  • Q Center 4115 North Mississippi Avenue Portland, OR, 97217 United States (map)


City Repair is excited to host our third community placemaking conversation with the topic of “Making a Place for Everyone” on Sept 26, 2017 at 6:30pm at the Q Center (4115 N Mississippi Ave). This program is in large part funded by Oregon Humanities

To date, this conversation series has highlighted stories of Food and Housing Justice in the spring for the Village Building Convergence. Now we will hear from community leaders and organization representatives that continue the good work at the intersection between Place and Equity. From utilizing historical neighborhood depictions, to artistic slogans or community organizing through placemaking, the speakers will shed light on their methods and challenges of reclaiming Place in this rapidly developing and segregating city. 

Speakers include Jessica Rojas from NE Coalition of Neighborhoods, Judy BlueHorse Skeleton - a PSU professor in Ingidenous Studies and driving force in the Cully Inter-Tribal Gathering Garden, Donovan Smith from Ignorant Reflections, Candace Kita from Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO), and more. 

Event entrance is $10-20 sliding scale, no-one turned away and includes a dinner from a local POC restaurant. 

This event also acts as the 3rd Village Inspiration Convergence, an event to initiate the placemaking season for City Repair when we begin to help 30-50 communities to develop projects that benefit the commons such as intersection repair paintings, permaculture gardens, community kiosks/natural buildings, and building villages for the housless.
