Call to Citizens

"Cincinnati PARK[ing] Day" call for entries (Posted: Aug. 6, 2008) -- Cincinnati PARK[ing] Day announces a call to citizens for the second annual "Cincinnati PARK[ing] Day" to be held Sept. 19, 2008 in parking spaces around Cincinnati. This is a one-day, global event in which artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform parking spots into public parks and alternative public spaces. Parking spaces show the fundamental elements of a good outdoor public space and may include seating, shade, and a place to watch people, exchange information, and view scenery. Each parking spot can be transformed into a park, playground, puppet show, or whatever you like.

This event is open to the public. There is no entry fee. There are no commissions. We're looking to hear from interested parties before Sept. 5, 2008 so that we can start lining up parking spaces, organizing materials and advising the community of our ambitious intentions.
