It’s official: Bow to Bluff has just been awarded the Canadian Institute of Planners national Innovation Award for 2013! Congratulations to the Bow to Bluff team and O2 Planning+Design. Big thanks to Alderman Druh Farrell and the Ward 7 Office for championing the project from the beginning, as well as City Council, key members of City Administration, and HSCA. And thank you to everyone who volunteered, supported and participated in the wildly successful Bow to Bluff citizen-led engagement and co-design process.
Next up at Bow to Bluff: the containR village in Sunnyside! Please donate to the containR campaign and share this link widely:
We’re raising funds to build a “theatre for the people” as part of this innovative urban placemaking project in the heart of the Bow to Bluff corridor. Make the dream happen!
Please note that the HSCA offices are CLOSED Monday, May 20 for Victoria Day.
We hope everyone has a great weekend, and will be open for business again on Tuesday.
Springboard Performance, HSCA and Bow to Bluff propose to install and activate a temporary containR village on the empty triangle site just south of the Sunnyside LRT station this summer. The pop-up venue of repurposed shipping containers will be programmed with a feast of events, exhibits, performances, and engagement activities. We hope this innovative experiment in urban placemaking will enrich the public space experience for all Calgarians!
