100in1Day Hamilton is back again and the Hamilton SPN is excited to continue supporting this fantastic initiative for another year! 100in1Day Hamilton is part of a growing global movement that is changing how people interact with their cities. Originating in Bogotá, Colombia in 2012, 100in1Day has encouraged hundreds of community-based interventions in the streets, sidewalks, parks, alleyways, public squares, waterfronts, front lawns, porches and common spaces of cities around the world.
Interventions are simple, often low-cost community projects or actions that are free, open to anyone, and designed to create positive change, like pop-up parking space parties, plant swaps and seed giveaways, alleyway concerts, community art creation and neighbourhood potlucks. Interventions like these take place all on one day, in a series of city-wide 100in1Day celebrations that demonstrate the collective power of small actions.
Leading up to the June 2 festival, Evergreen, the sponsoring organization, invites you to participate in a series of community workshops designed to develop new urban intervention leaders through active, inclusive, and engaging dialogue and activity.
