The Repair Club comes to Toronto

Tuesday, November 8th, 2005 • 7pm, free
Innis College Town Hall (off St. George, just north of Harbord on U of T campus)

Come take part in this Spacing sponsored event! There will be a discussion by the leaders of the City Repair Club of Portland on how to change your urban environment with creativity in collaboration with the powers at City Hall (a weird combo, for sure!).

City Repair was formed in 1996 by citizen activists who wanted a more community-oriented and ecologically sustainable society. Born out of a successful grassroots neighbourhood initiative that converted a residential street intersection into a neighbourhood public square, City Repair began its work with the idea that localization (of culture, of economy, of decision-making) is a necessary foundation of sustainability. By reclaiming urban spaces to create community-oriented places, City Repair plants the seeds for greater neighbourhood communication, empowering our communities and nurturing our local culture.

This event is generously supported by the Metcalf Foundation and hosted and organized by Ryerson urban planning professor Pamela Robinson.
