City Repair Calgary workshops in July

The Meaningful Work Project is proud to support an exciting upcoming workshop with Mark Lakeman from Portland:

Cracks in the Pavement

Placemaking and the remaking of a modern city with Mark Lakeman

Thursday July 17th

7pm – 9m

We invite you and your friends to join us for an inspiring look at what is possible in the city of Calgary and in your neighbourhood!

This inspiring talk is geared towards anyone from community builders, public service people, artists, industry professionals, municipal government employees and activists.

Mark Lakeman is an inspired urban designer who, with his neighbours, transformed their own intersection into a place for community gatherings and interaction in 1996.  This started a mini-revolution in Portland, OR that has spread throughout the city and birthed City Repair, an organization that engages citizens in transforming places.
