New Orleans Park(ing) Day is accepting design submissions.
This is an open call to artists, designers, architects, urban planners, and any other local activists to submit design proposals for New Orleans PARK(ing) Day. PARK(ing) Day is an annual, open-source global event where citizens, artists, and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into temporary public places. 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 creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world.
The proposal submission deadline is Friday, August 14 and approved projects will be announced the following week on Friday, August 21. Each park developer will be responsible for funding their project. Park(ing) Day festivities will take place on Friday, September 18, 10am - 4pm.
