Design Sundays | Dear Vancouver
April 10, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm$15
Dear Vancouver: An Experimental Letter Writing Campaign on Public Space invites participants to brainstorm and create a new and experimental campaign for communicating with, through and across the city of Vancouver.
Workshop coordinators – Justin Langlois and Alicia Medina Laddaga – will lead participants through creative forms of writing to synthesize letters that will be documented and subsequently distributed though post and/or online.
Letter writing campaigns have long been the first line of action by citizens asking for change in their communities. Whether writing to city hall, letters to the editor, or even posters in public places, the ways in which we address our city and one another goes a long way in shaping how we think about and live within Vancouver. Dear Vancouver workshop will implement collective letter drafting of enthusiastic praise, important demands, and open-ended questions to get to know where we live, and how we live in Vancouver. No experience in letter writing is necessary. Non-English speaking community members are highly encouraged to attend.
This workshop session is one in a series of four Design Sundays, and can be experienced as such or as a standalone event.
Date: April 10, 2:30-5:00pm
Admission: $15 Adults; $13 Students/Seniors; $10 MOV Members
