PARK(ing) Day is an annual global event where citizens, artists and designers collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces – temporary public spaces. The project aims to encourage critical thought and to spark our imaginations about how public spaces can be used.
Date: September 18-20, 2020
