About This Event
Each September, people around the world turn metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces for a day: temporary parklets, creative interventions and social spaces. For two years, Pitt's Center for Creativity and Department of Parking, Transportation, and Services have teamed up to sponsor a University PARK(ing) Day event. 20+ centers, departments, and student organizations take part, turning parking spaces into gardens, art studios, performance spaces, and more. Planning for 2019 is underway, and we want to start spreading the word, and the fun! We held some info sessions this spring to introduce the Pitt community to ideas underpinning PARK(ing) Day. Now you can join us to take a deeper dive: learn more about tactical urbanism, discuss creative solutions to typical PARK(ing) Day challenges, and work through ideas for your department or center's participation. Attendance at a previous PARK(ing) Day info session is not required. This session will get deeper into the PARK(ing) Day concept, but we welcome newcomers! Food and drink provided.
