Street, faire, taking it to the streets, design, festival
Thank you for your interest in participating in "taking it to the streets!" A design festival open to all. This wouldn’t happen without you. We’re really excited that you are checking this festival out and that you may want to do something spectacular in this great City. It is folks like you that make great places. So bring it on and let’s have some outstanding fun!
The Old Town streets have always been a place where people gather to enjoy local life and festivities. Streets increasingly play important ecological roles in the city, with strategies that serve to magnify the space as a livable and living, place. Many highly beneficial social outcomes, including economic growth, increased health, and improvements in air quality are linked to well-designed streets that enable active social and ecologic life. "Taking it to the streets" seeks to elaborate on the street’s role as an agent of social life.
Thanks to all the participants for their great work!
