Today is the final day to register for Park(ing) Day 2014.
Today is the final day to register for Park(ing) Day 2014. The annual event, held on the third Friday in September, involves local businesses and groups taking over and reimagining a parking space in the city. The idea is to engage the community with their surrounds and to make people think about how we use urban spaces. The guerrilla architecture event started in San Francisco in 2005, and made its way to Adelaide in 2010. Last year, Adelaide’s event was the biggest in the country and the third largest in the world. Registration is fairly simple: read the FAQs, pull together your team, work out your idea and then wait til Friday, September 19, when you can release your creativity on the world. Available and taken spaces can be seen on PARK(ing) Day’s site guide here or below. The 2014 event will be spread across Hindley, Leigh, Waymouth and Pirie Streets, as well as Topham Mall and Hindmarsh Square. Enlarge Enlarge Applications close on Friday, September 5.
The call is also out for a member of the public to join the jury, charged with judging the parking spaces. To throw your name in the ring, email [email protected] and tell them in 25 words or less why you should be a member of the 2014 Adelaide PARK(ing) Day jury. The best and most creative answer gets the opportunity to be part of the jury on the day and help decide the winner for 2014, plus you and a friend are invited to the afterparty where the winner is announced.
