No Comments  |  Leave a comment

VPSN founder Andrew Pask will be part of a discussion on winter placemaking in rainy cities. For the night-owls out there, the event takes place at 11:30pm-1:00am on November 10. Join in and share your thoughts on wet weather public space!

The webinar is the first in a series about populating public space during the cold and dark season is rain. From the event posting:

“Wet and cold but also life-giving and fun. Are there activities best performed when raining and how do we mitigate the discomfort of bad weather? A summer rain might be sensual but how about a rainy November evening? Join us in our exploration of how to enable life in public space all year round.

The webinar will consist of two parts. First, speakers on rain placemaking from Gothenburg and Vancouver. Second, a brief workshop to further dig into the issues together. We will co-create new ways of bringing life to our cities on rainy days.”
