TRANSFORM YOUR CITY
WHAT IF HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE UNITED, EACH TAKING ONE SMALL ACTION TO IMPROVE THEIR CITY, ALL ON THE SAME DAY?
100in1Day is a day to turn ideas into reality all over the city by celebrating the cumulative power of small changes and temporary projects. Start by submitting your ideas, attending a workshop, and then launch your project on June 3.
Thank you Edmonton. You made our inaugural 100in1Day a huge success last year. We had 101 projects in total on June 4, 2016—yeah, we're overachievers. It's time to rally together once again and try to beat last year's record. We can't wait to see what you come up with this time around!
Submit your 100in1Day project
Your project doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. You'll be amazed what you can do with common household items or with material donated by friends and neighbours.
Here's how you can be part of 100in1Day:
- Create a Make Something Edmonton profile
- Create a page for your project
- Complete the 100in1Day submission form
Submit by May 26 at 11:59pm.
If your project requires a permit, please submit by April 21 at 5:00pm to ensure that you receive your permit by June 3.
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
