Robson Square - Jazz Fest - P1050604 - detail

The City of Vancouver has recently posted a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEOI) related to the summertime activation of the 800-block of Robson Street. It’s part of the broader Viva Vancouver initiative – which is about “creatively transforming streets into vibrant public spaces.”

As many of you know, the VPSN has been happy to support the expansion and enhancement of Robson Square for a number of years now. In addition to our advocacy work on this, we’ve also had the opportunity to work on a number of projects connected with this important gathering space.

The VPSN is looking to submit a proposal and is interested in collaborating with other organizations or individuals who may have ideas to activate the 800-block.

Time is of the essence, and we’ll be holding a meeting next Friday, February 15 at 6:00pm. If you’d like to join in the conversation, please email us at robsonsquare [at] vancouverpublicspace <dot> ca and let us know. We’ll send out the location details once we get them finalized.

You can also read the RFEOI here – which will give you some sense of what the City is considering as part of the summertime initiative.
