What if 100+ people came together to share their vision of how they want to live, work and play in their city, all on the same day? On Saturday, June 4, Evergreen has invited, for the third year in a row, Metro Vancouver’s citizens to activate their city changing ideas for 100In1Day. This city-wide festival is a fun, inclusive way to focus on the role of people and public spaces, and demonstrate the power we all have to make small actions that make big improvements to our communities.
Here are a few highly anticipated 100In1Day activities to watch out for this year:
- West End Art Jam – Join West End Arts from 1-8pm at the Haywood Bandstand in Alexandra Park, for an afternoon of live music, games and community engagement.
- Seawall Cycle & Sketch – Lea and Davie will be leading a bicycle tour of the Seawall, from Lost Lagoon to the Maritime Museum, enjoying city views, and stopping to observe details by sketching them on paper.
- Love Letter to the Library – Participate in one of the Vancouver Public Library’s five urban interventions at the Marpole Branch. VPL is asking participants to grab a marker, a letter and an envelope, and tell the library what they’d like to see in their community.
- Sapperton Plaza Bloom Festival – Repeat urban intervention leader, Alex, is sprucing up his local plaza with chalk paint and stencils. He hopes to encourage passersby to think about public space differently and show care for their neighbourhood.
Urban interventions are being registered online, and there is still time to get involved. Check out the complete list of 100In1Day Vancouver activities at vancouver.100in1day.ca.
