RainCheque: NeighbourMaker Design Jam
Order tickets (limited capacity) via Eventbrite at https://raincheque.eventbrite.ca/
How can we make new social connections in the rain? The Museum of Vancouver invites you to join the Vancouver Design Nerds in a special Design Jam entitled Raincheque! This NeighbourMaker event challenges you to design tools that encourage Vancouverites to connect with each other in rainy public spaces.
Thanks to the support of the Vancouver Foundation and Bazinga!, the NeighbourMaker program is offering mentorship and financial support (a “raincheque”) for the development of a prototype of the top concept developed during the Design Jam.
Inspiration + Mini-Catalogue Launch!
Before the jam begins, we will hear from the NeighbourMaker teams as they share stories and learnings about the development of their work: The Campfire Project, Peeple Panorama, and Big Picture, Small Space. These projects are featured in the new NeighbourMaker mini-catalogue, which will be presented. Movers and shakers of Vancouver’s placemaking community will then share a few words:
Krisztina Kassay & Jenniffer Sheel (VIVA Vancouver)
Caroline Ballhorn & Jenny Lee Craig (Tin Can Studio)
Andrew Pask (VPSN & Planner City of Vancouver)
Date: Thursday, October 30, 2014
Admission: $15 General | $11 MOV Members | A limited number of subsidized tickets are available, contact Paul Carr (pcarr[at]museumofvancouver[dot]ca or 604 730 5317) for more information.
