An important part of this evening will also be our silent auction and raffle of local community goods, services, and experiences. Proceeds will directly benefit operations for the 2019 Village Building Convergence (VBC), a 10-day event where City Repair facilitates local creative placemaking projects that empower the interconnection of human communities with the natural world. By day, placemaking projects include intersection street murals, ecological landscaping, and natural building. By night, the evening program welcomes several community leaders, local activists, and grassroots organizers as speakers, facilitators, and panelists. Connections deepen, and the feeling of a modern village comes alive by offering participants a collective sense of place.
We are reaching out to local businesses and organizations to offer items, services, classes, gift certificates, opportunities for experiences, and more for this fundraiser event. By donating to the raffle and silent auction, your contributions ensure that City Repair provides support, resources, and opportunities to help diverse communities reclaim the culture, power, and joy that we all deserve.
At the site of the “Emergence” there will be an Artist Village where local artwork will be displayed for purchase. In exchange, City Repair asks that one print or piece of your artwork is donated to the silent auction and raffle fundraiser.
