Meet the Public Space Makers

  • Jim Deva Plaza 1200 Bute Street Vancouver, BC, V6E 1N1 Canada (map)

As part of the Lumiere Vancouver, join the City of Vancouver for a speaker series on public space in the Lumiere tent in Jim Deva Plaza!

As Vancouver evolves, it’s important that we take a hard look at how our public spaces function. Who are Vancouver’s public space makers? What kind of public spaces do we need in Downtown Vancouver? How can we better program and enjoy our public spaces year round?

This event will bring together some of Vancouver’s top public space activators for a fun and creative speaker series on the topic of public life in a rainy city. Don’t forget to dress warm! The event will be moderated by Jenniffer Sheel, City of Vancouver's Manager of Street Activities.
