Park(ing) Day Los Angeles - Reclaiming Our Streets One Parking Space at a Time

About the Salon
Park(ing) Day Los Angeles is coming up on Friday September 21, 2007.

Come join the August 17, 2007 Farmlab Public Salon and learn about what is Park(ing) Day, and how to get involved.

Based on a successful event started by the ReBAR Group and the Trust for Public Land in San Francisco, on Park(ing) day, local folks reclaim public space by creating temporary parks in parking spaces throughout the city. Caravans of bicyclists deliver sod, potted trees, benches and chairs. Pedestrians stop and relax on their way through the city.

Park(ing) Day creates a dialog about cities, creativity, lack of open space, and how much real estate we give over to our cars. Salon will include showing the ReBAR group’s 16-minute Parking Day documentary.

this is such a very, very cool concept.
I can also see how it can make possible other creative ventures, by virtue of constructing an environment where one did not exist previously.
for example, it can become a street "theatre" for a poetry reading, a temporary art gallery, a small stage for a musical presentation, etc.
(caveat: there may be legal issues here; what do i know)
very cool....
