PARK(ing) Day 2019 Info Session

Today, it’s just a parking space.... But what could it be? 

Every September, people around the world turn metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces for one day: temporary parklets, creative interventions and social spaces.

For two years now, Pitt's Center for Creativity and Department of Parking, Transportation, and Services have teamed up to sponsor a University PARK(ing) Day event.

20-25 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!

Join us for this informational session to find out just what PARK(ing) Day is, see examples of creative transformations, meet and share ideas with other Pitt creators, and learn about how your group or department can take part this fall. 

If PARK(ing) Day sounds cool, and you think your department, center, office, or organization might be into it, but you're not sure how or where to start, this session is for you! We're can offer you all the information, advice, and pizza you need to get started. Food and drink provided!

Friday, May 10 at 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
