Thank you Edmonton. You've made our second year of 100in1Day a huge success! It's now time to come together, grab your friends, and see what our city has come up with. Be sure to share your discoveries and favourite projects on social media using the #100in1DayYEG hashtag. We can't wait to see what you find!
What kinds of projects are we going to see?
We want our 100in1Day projects to temporarily improve a public space in Edmonton and demonstrate how a community might achieve more lasting positive change. It may be led by an individual, community-based group, or an organization.
Projects can be practical, like planting trees or pop-up street furniture. They can be social, like hosting a block party. They can be artistic, like flash mobs or yarn bombing. They can challenge us or fix a problem. They can be as big or small as you want. All projects must be safe, legal and inclusive.
Examples of placemaking include:
- Art installations or street art
- Public performances or storytelling
- Planting community gardens or cleaning up a park
- Screening films outdoors
- Hosting a community potluck or BBQ
- Playing games such as soccer, jump rope or hopscotch
- Setting up a free lemonade stand and talking to passersby
