100in1Day Burlington celebrates urban interventions for lasting positive change
They may not have reached their final goal, but the Burlington 100in1Day event will still offer plenty of fun, quirky events for local residents to take part in tomorrow.
First held in Burlington in 2018, the event was cancelled the last two years because of the pandemic. Organizers, however, remained undeterred for this year.
The concept is simple, 100 urban interventions in 1 day. An urban intervention is an activity, project or installation that temporarily improves a public space and demonstrates how a community might achieve more lasting positive change. It may be led by an individual, community-based group, or an organization.
Projects can be practical, like planting trees or pop-up street furniture. They can be social, like hosting a block party. They can be artistic, like flash mobs or yarn bombing. They can challenge or be used to fix a problem. They can be as big or small as you want. All projects must be safe, legal and inclusive.
Tomorrows event, June 4, has 27 interventions scheduled, from chalk art to scavenger hunts to outdoor group fitness events.
