Hear the Play on Wheels story in the new mini-doc! Thanks to our wonderful editor, Richard Blais, from New Shadow Productions.
Play on Wheels is making a re debut since its last outing in September at Beakerhead Festival’s ‘Little Big Street.’ During those 4 days over 6000 people experienced the wonders of this magnificent little big project and we’d love to get another mass of people to experience it in upcoming events this summer (one of the events starting in just a few days).
We have brushed off the dust and are excited to display the interactive playground with the community once more this Saturday, April 18, 2015 at the ContainR Space (1020 2nd Avenue, NW), Sustainability in Action event from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. This is a free event that gives time and space for the public to explore the theme of sustainability through conversation and workshops “facilitated by local experts in community gardening, alternative transportation, and cultivating community resilience.” During this time youth will be given the opportunity to work side by side with the artists to design a mural and be given a tour of the Play on Wheels trailer. There will also be local talent –Rotary Park and La Rougette– performing live music. For more info on the event please visit the events Facebook page here.
Following this event, on May 7, 2015, there will be an outdoor street festival on 8th Avenue SW highlighting Calgary’s unique, diverse arts scene with music, art and general festive cheerfulness. It is open to the public and from 7:00pm to 8:30pm we will be painting the chosen mural design on the trailer.
So come down, enjoy the festivities April 18 and May 7 and experience the wonders of the arts and the communities.
