100 in 1 Day Vancouver: Workshop May 14 to prepare to create an intervention that will make Vancouver a better place.

What if hundreds of people united, each putting in place the changes they wish to see in their city, all on the same day? On June 7, for the first time-ever, Vancouver will host 100 in 1 Day.

This citizen-driven festival will unite people across the city to make Vancouver a better place by creating acts of urban change. These acts, or interventions, have the potential to raise awareness of urban and social issues, inspire ideas, and motivate leaders to consider new approaches to old problems.

West End Neighbourhood Food Network joins with Village Vancouver to host a workshop to prepare.

May 14, 2014,  from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
Gordon Neighbourhood House, at 1019 Broughton St, Vancouver
Organized by 100 in 1 Day, Ross Moster, VV, and WENFN
Special thanks to Gordon Neighbourhood House for providing the space.

Building up to 100 in 1 Day, people of all ages, backgrounds and locations across the city are invited to attend workshops to develop their interventions—from idea to execution. The workshop process is meant to inspire generative, creative and reflective interventions, and for you to share your ideas for making your city a better place to live. During the workshop, participants will be asked:

  • What is your dream?
  • What do you wish your community to be like?
  • What actions will improve the quality of life in your community, street and block?
