Village Building Convergence 2005
May 20 - 29, Portland, Oregon

Come change the world with us this May! For ten days VBC5 will transform 
the urban grid, sparking ecological and societal visions into action, going 
beyond mere sustainability and into creative, living culture.

Come build with us, you makers and seers. Be with us when neighborhoods 
come outside and into the streets to build and laugh, design and dance as 
they remake their worlds.

Permaculture, Natural Building, Public Art, Participatory Democracy, 
Localization of Economy - there will be more simultaneous ecological 
place-making during this year's VBC event than ever before! Evening 
presentations and actions involving brilliant and passionate people and 
their movements, music and dance, food and fun!

More information regarding projects, site leaders, and event and workshop 
schedules will follow soon. This year, event registration will be only $270 
per person for all ten days, which will include on site lunches, dinner at 
the central venue, access to all sites and events, and accommodations. To
