Do you want to get notices of programming at the containR in Sunnyside? This is from our first 2014 meeting to plan arts, food, music, and family events. There will be many more containers arriving over the coming months. Stay up to day by liking us at www.facebook.com/bowtobluff
When it comes to spray paint there’s good art and bad art. ContainR was thrilled to engage Daniel J. Kirk to paint the dancer on the south side of the container. The work is still underway and will develop into something even more beautiful.
Unfortunately however, some pretty uninspired folks also sprayed the sides facing the courtyard. These have now been covered up in preparation for more great art coming soon!
Here are the before and after photos from when we covered up the vandalism:
Jane’s Walk honours the legacy and ideas of urban activist and writer Jane Jacobs who championed the interests of local residents and pedestrians over a car-centered approach to planning. Jane’s Walk often takes Jacobs’ ideas to communities unfamiliar with her ideas, in order to advance local engagement with contemporary urban planning practices. The walks helps knit people together into a strong and resourceful community, instilling belonging and encouraging civic leadership. In May of 2013, more than 800 walks were held in over 100 cities in 22 countries worldwide.
