CityStudio is an experimentation and innovation hub for the City of Vancouver where staff, students and community members design and launch projects on the ground
Join us for an afternoon of fun outdoor workshops and activities that shed a new perspective on Outdoor Learning in Everett Crowley Park! Students from SFU’s Semester in Dialogue will showcase their final projects, which deal with central questions of Everett Crowley Park: What has happened here? What is happening here now? And what should be happening here?
This event will also mark the completion of CityStudio’s Outdoor Learning Project, a collaboration between SFU Semester in Dialogue, BCIT, the Vancouver Park Board, and the Everett Crowley Park Committee made possible by a grant from the Vancouver Foundation. This project brought together students, community members and stakeholders to imagine an outdoor classroom in Everett Crowley Park. Come learn more about the project and try out a prototype for an outdoor learning installation.
We hope you can join us for this celebration and dialogue.
Food and water will be available on site, but please remember to bring a water bottle!
Thursday, June 23rd (1:00-3:00pm) @ Everett Crowley Park, Manfred’s Meadow
