Mission: The City Repair Project fosters thriving, inclusive and sustainable communities through the creative reclamation of public space.
We facilitate artistic and ecologically-oriented placemaking through projects that honor the interconnection of human communities and the natural world. We are an organized group action that educates and inspires communities and individuals to creatively transform the places where they live. The many projects of City Repair have been accomplished by a mostly volunteer staff and thousands of volunteer citizen activists.
Our co-founders were profoundly inspired by the Lacandon Maya. Our initial research to both credit them in the founding of this organization but also to support the cultural context that co-birthed our mission, we found this local organization that is working to support the Lacandon and their way of life. We have no direct contact with this initiative so please use your own judgement if you decide to support them.
As we continue to uncover ways that we can reciprocate the invaluable gift that the Lacandon have given our organization, please feel free to write to us with your own resources/recommendations.
