VIRTUAL PARK(ING) DAY KNOXVILLE

ABOUT VIRTUAL PARK(ING) DAY

PARK(ing) Day is an international event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into ā€œPARK(ing)ā€ spaces: temporary public parks or parklets. The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement, with organizations and individuals (operating independently of Rebar but following an established set of guidelines) creating new forms of public space in communities around the world.

In response to social distancing and other requirements, we have opted to forgo the traditional PARK(ing) Day event this year in favor of a completely virtual event. Explore our Virtual Gay Street above or see each team's approach to the challenge below.
