Saturday adventures in public space
We’ve picked four of our favourites.
How many urban interventions can you fit into 24 hours? Our good friends at Evergreen are behind an event called 100 in 1 Day, a cross-country initiative aimed at enlivening urban spaces. The city is host to dozens of public space activations, some small, some large, and all of them citizen-driven. There are walking tours, art installations, urban nature adventures and so much more. There is a lot going on, so be sure to check it out.

Keys to the Street Fundraiser
Our good friends at Red Cat Records are hosting a saloon style fundraiser for the Keys to the Streets program. Do you love the public pianos program as much as we do? If so, this is the event for you. Join local artists as they tinkle the ivories, and lend your support to this fantastic placemaking initiative.
