What kinds of projects are we looking for?

An urban intervention is an activity, project or installation that temporarily improves a public space and demonstrates 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 urban interventions 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
