Reclaiming the street

Never opposed to a bit of fun activism, I am so looking forward to visiting Portland’s Park(ing) Day this Friday (Sept 20th). Last time, it was me, a rattan mat, picnic table, and the hot Australian sun. This time? It’s not me. But they’re planning on an entire downtown block.

I, too, feel strongly about the importance of public space, in particular in downtowns — where most of the people go, yet where much of the space is cramped and taken away. I’m really looking forward seeing this one in action, and glad to see the buzz and dialog this is creating.
