How do you create a neighborhood feel, within a city that is renowned as having been designed and built as “automobile-centric”?
Come find out, at an evening with Mark Lakeman, founder of City Repair, Tues Mar 22 …
Mark Lakeman is a national leader in the development of sustainable public places. He created City Repair and the Village Building Convergence to reclaim city spaces for the people. In the last decade, with the help of thousands of volunteer activists, he has directed, facilitated, and inspired designs for more than three hundred new community-generated public places in Portland, Oregon, and many more worldwide.
City Repair has done things like painted intersections, installed benches, planted gardens, built Little Free Libraries, and other colorful artistic and techniques which bring people together as a neighborhood and a community.
Now we’re doing it in Los Angeles! Come meet Mark, get inspired, and get connected with like-minded people who want to launch similar projects to transform their local places in L.A.
