We invite you to gather and celebrate the behind-the-scenes progress of Better Block PDX. This event will be a night of gratitude for our partners, volunteers, and friends who have supported us over the years. We will showcase our past projects and successes to date. This night we will also announce exciting news about the transformation of the PSU Project Pathway and Better Block PDX!

-Free event, food, community, and fun-

If you’re new to Better Block PDX, welcome! Were a public spaces advocacy group, inspired by a national nonprofit. Over the past 3 years we’ve been working with Portland State University students to create plans that help communities bring their pop-up placemaking projects to life. Through our collaborations with students and professors the PSU Project Pathway was formed, a program that integrates tactical urbanism into the academic curriculum.
