Indianapolis Placemaking DayJuly 11, 2016
Indianapolis City Market and Big Car Collaborative are working with Southwest Airlines, Project for Public Spaces, Downtown Indy, and the City of Indianapolis to celebrate placemaking and the role of art and culture in activating great places for people.
Join us for a day of food, games, art making and fun — while also sharing your ideas for City Market's outdoor plazas. The free activities start at 9 am with Mayor Hogsett's welcome, continues with a group workout, the farmer's market at 9:30 am, a community picnic lunch, afternoon games, an evening beer garden and (at dark) a screening of Midnight in Paris — a film about place and culture and dreams. Also, the Wagon of Wonders will be on site as well as games and activites from the Bike Hub YMCA.
With Placemaking Day, we're launching the second phase of the Spark initiative that uses place-based programming to help activate wonderful public spaces in the heart of our city — this time City Market and Monument Circle. We kick off the 2016 round of Spark — supported with the help of a major grant from the Southwest Airlines Heart of the Community program — on July 13.
