Portland VBC Placemaking Calendar

Our community project cycle includes a call for proposals in Fall 2017 with a deadline to send these in by mid-January 2018. We then run a train-the-trainers program between February and May 2018 with most projects being implemented during our ten-day barnraiser - the Village Building Convergence 2018/ VBC 18, June 1-10. Sometimes, the natural building projects extend into the summer but the last date that we support painting projects is on National Night Out, the first Tuesday in August.

Info Sessions Coming SOON!

We host info sessions to clarify the scope of our program and the services/support we offer. Please keep in touch via this website and our facebook event page.
