Event description

Description

On Saturday, June 2nd, 2018, 100In1Day is returning to Toronto! We invite you to join your community in transforming your city through hundreds of urban interventions in public spaces around the country all on one day.

Imagine the possibilities for our city if hundreds of people united to participate in small initiatives to spark change. 100In1Day Canada is part of a growing global movement changing how people collaborate and interact with their cities.

Here's a video that shows what happened on the last 100In1Day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eCPMSjwLOw

People of all ages, backgrounds and locations across the city are invited to attend workshops to develop their 100In1Day interventions – from idea to execution.

By who, for who? Whether we're planning an intervention for 100in1Day, or we're engaging in any sort of initiative or event in the city, this is a central question to build our work around. We will be inviting Erin Kang, the Founder of Stories of Ours, to examine this question with us.

This FREE workshop will focus on the power of story and narrative in civic engagement and place-making, exploring various strategies and frameworks of storytelling and its relationship to place-making and community-building. We will discuss how stories and narratives can create opportunities or barriers for different people, reflect on our own relationship to our city and work, and explore ways we can build bridges via stories in our work.
