Park People SummitFebruary 24th 2018. 13:00 to 16:30
Registration is now open for Park People's 8th Annual Park Summit
Saturday, February 24 - 1:00-4:30pm
Daniels Spectrum, Regent Park
The theme of this year's Summit is Let’s Play: Montreal in Toronto and our speakers and activities will take a seriously inspiring look at play.
Montreal has a special knack for play, so we’ve invited speakers from Montreal to share their formula for upping the fun factor in our parks and public spaces.
Our keynote speaker, Mouna Andraos is co-founder at Montreal’s Daily tous les jours, an interactive design studio that creates large-scale public installations that encourage participation and spark joy. One of these installations, 21 Balançoires (swings), launched in a busy Montreal square and invited passers-by to work together to produce melodies on a huge swing set. Learn more about her work here.
Park Summit will feature a stellar line-up of community park groups and performances. After the speakers, the Park Social will give you a chance to mix and connect with city councillors, park volunteers, park staff, and fellow park advocates.
Attendees are invited to arrive at 11:30 to help bake Montreal bagels and take part in 'sugaring off' at the Regent Park firepit.
