  • Downtown Places & Spaces Strategy


Students created a series of documentary shorts to explore and bring awareness to Vancouver’s downtown public spaces. The shorts support the Downtown Places & Spaces Strategy which aims to improve and create more public space in the downtown area. They interviewed experts and people on the street to find out what public space means to them and the community. The resulting work was a 3-minute video teaser and short social media clips used to promote public space and to attract interest to the project. The collection of b-roll and interviews will also be used as research. The students spent around two months filming in the downtown areas.
