Only-in-Portland Park(ing) Day 2018
April 14, 2018 at 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
PBOT and Design Week Portland invite the community to submit their ideas for a special only-in-Portland Park(ing) Day. Held on the first day of Design Week Portland 2018, April 14, the Portland-only Park(ing) Day will create opportunities for Portlanders, artists and activists to reinvent public spaces as mini-parklets around the city. The goal of the program is to inspire creative placemaking and to highlight different uses of our streets, sidewalks and alleys. Applications, guidelines and requirements can be found at http://www.pbotparkingday.com.
Coinciding with the launch of the new season of PBOT’s Portland in the Streets programming, this special Park(ing) Day will take place at Custom Blocks located in the heart of the Central Eastside. The PBOT and Design Week Portland partnership represents a merging of the respective missions of the Portland in the Streets Program and Design Week Portland: To promote creative and innovative design approaches that have significant cultural and social impacts on everyday life.
The bureau invites Portland residents and members of the Portland design community to submit their Park(ing) Day installation proposals to transform and enliven 8‘ x 20’ parking spaces throughout Portland into temporary art and design spaces.
