Evening Talk: Mark Lakeman SUPPER Event

Join us in attending a uniquely dynamic and inspiring lecture given by national leader in the development of sustainable public places, Mark Lakeman. This lecture will cover topics such as resilient cities, urban placemaking, sustainable architecture, and, social permaculture.

In the last decade Mark has directed, facilitated, or inspired design for more than three hundred new community-generated public places in Portland Oregon alone. Through his leadership in Communitecture, Inc., and its various affiliates such as the The City Repair Project (501)c3), The Village Building Convergence, and the Planet Repair Institute, he has been instrumental in the development of dozens of participatory organizations and urban permaculture design projects across the United States and Canada.

Mark Lakemen is the co-founder of the non-profit placemaking organization The City Repair Project, and principal of the community architecture and planning firm Communitecture. Mr. Lakeman is also an urban place-maker and permaculture designer, community design facilitator and committed to the emergence of sustainable cultural landscapes everywhere! Whether involved with urban design and placemaking, ecological building, or assisting those who typically do not have access to design services, every design project furthers the development of a beneficial vision for human and ecological communities.

We hope to see you there!

    Great talk, great people. If you want to get involved reclaiming streets in your neighborhood considering joining the exciting grassroots Seattle Neighborhood Greenways movement! http://seattlegreenways.org/

    I came away profoundly sad. The bright shining star which feels entirely inaccessible from my Seattle isolation and my spectator seat as a grandmother who cannot keep up and no one seems to be watching out for. I do have some eyes on me from being in the Occupy Chaplains group but in SPG I feel very much invisible. No one out there offering to "paint my house" or even to help me get to meetings so I don't have to be alone on the streets and the buses late at night. Last night I got the rare offer of a ride from someone who I know from Occupy but mostly lately I have been staying home.

    If anyone would like to hear more, share stories, talk about the issues I'm bringing up (hint: it's not just about me, there are many more of us out here) please get in touch. Maybe we could put a group together to do that and help repair our own city.

    Love Gram Anita

    From what I remember last time it is a POTLUCK. So bring food to share for SUPPER.

    Sounds awesome, does "supper" mean we bring food or there will be food or something else entirely? If it is referring to food will it be vegan/vegetarian friendly? thanks y'all!

    Definitely interested. I might go to this, but there isn't a "maybe" option.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
