Advocacy, education and outreach in support of Vancouver's public spaces

A great public space is not static. Any space can become vibrant when activated by people with great ideas and the passion to bring citizens together.

In the past, the Vancouver Public Space Network and its partners have used everyday items like pianos, picnic tables, Styrofoam blocks and drumsticks to transform ordinary spaces into gathering places where people can eat, play music, create art and socialize.

“The Social Use of Public Spaces” refers to this idea that people are the essential ingredient when creating a lively public space.
