100 in 1 Day Hamilton on June 6, 2015! Join us for a festival of citizen-driven action!
A dedicated team of Hamilton volunteers are working in collaboration to organize a city-wide event taking place on Saturday, June 6th called 100in1Day Hamilton. 100in1Day is a growing global movement that is changing how people interact with their cities. Originating in Bogotá, Colombia in 2012, it has encouraged hundreds of one-day community-based interventions in cities around the world. Interventions can include things like street art, urban gardens, beautification projects, social events, and improvements in city infrastructure, which are all being profiled on the same day in a city-wide festival. This year, Hamilton will be joining cities around the world including Toronto, Vancouver, and Halifax who will all be activating their communities on Saturday, June 6th.
All across the city, people are invited to attend workshops to develop their 100 in 1 Day interventions—from idea to execution. This workshop process is meant to inspire generative, creative and reflective urban interventions, and for you to share your ideas for making your city a better place to live. Find a schedule of these free workshops online at hamilton.100in1day.ca/#events.
