PLAYtheBLOX: Re-Imagine Downtown Edition
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
149 West Hastings Street
What will Vancouver’s downtown core become 25 years into the future?Re-Imagine Downtown Vancouver and the Vancouver Design Nerds have teamed up and are inviting you to dream big with us. The event is designed to inspire new ideas as we collectively envision more desirable futures for this city we love! Downtown is in transition, changing rapidly; this is your opportunity to help shape its future!
We want to collaborate with you and hear what you love already, and how it can be even more awesome.
“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.”
On deck this evening will be beer, refreshments, music, and a new mapping game called PLAYtheBLOX. It’s designed to provide an immersive, fun way to discuss and explore urban design and civic engagement, and ultimately generate tangible ideas to help transform our city for the collective better. The gameplay challenges you, amidst real-world problems and spaces, to develop creative, strategic partnerships with fellow gamers to unlock collective achievements.
Ultimately, everyone wins when we foster an inclusive, vibrant local community. Join us in designing better spaces downtown together.
