Project Butterfly invites you to a fundraiser for with Mark Lakeman, Co-Founder of the City Repair Project of Portland, Oregon []


Join us for dinner and an intimate conversation/presentation by Mark Lakeman.

The City Repair Project emerged in Portland, Oregon 13 years ago as a guerilla project for transformative urban insurrections. These have included radical cultural buildings with the highest natural and recycled content in the USA, dozens of street intersections transformed into community-designed public squares, villages designed and built by homeless people, fabulous permaculture installations in strategic public places, the Portland DePave movement, and an incredible diversity of innovative ecological installations across the whole geography of Portland called the Village Building Convergence. Since 1996, over 200 projects have emerged in Portland, Oregon alone as well as dozens of other cities across North America.

Mark will share his experiences in Portland and other cities with our Los Angeles' community, so that we can learn, develop and apply these ideas towards making Los Angeles a more sustainable city.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A and dialog.
