PARK(ing) Day 2020


  coming September 18, 2020


Today, it’s just a parking space.... But what could it be? 

Every September, people around the world turn metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces for one day: temporary parklets, creative interventions and social spaces.

For three years, Pitt's Center for Creativity and Department of Parking, Transportation, and Services have teamed up to sponsor a University PARK(ing) Day event.

Over 20 centers, departments, and student organizations take part, turning parking spaces into gardens, art studios, performance spaces, and more. Planning for 2020 is underway, and we want to start spreading the word, and the fun!

Join us for an online session to find out just what PARK(ing) Day is, see examples of creative transformations, meet and share ideas with other Pitt creators, and learn how your group or department can participate this fall. 

If PARK(ing) Day sounds cool, but you're not sure how or where to start, this session is for you! We can offer you all the information and advice you need to get started.

More info coming soon!
