2015 Seattle Design Festival and PARK(ing) Day Announced!



#SDF2015 / Design for Equity: Upcoming call for programs!

Equity (ˈek·wə·dē/) noun: the quality of being fair and impartial.

For one week in September, the 2015 Seattle Design Festival will explore equity issues across design disciplines.  Make landscape architecture part of the discussion by responding to the upcoming Call for Programs! Opportunities are available to give a talk, host an event, plan an activity, and more. Check out the SDF website for details, or reach out to Design in Public at [email protected]

#SDF2015 / Save the date: PARK(ing) Day is 9/18!

Think of PARK(ing) Day when planning your charitable contributions for 2015. Last year, WASLA members stepped up to sponsor PARK(ing) Day Seattle, allowing more than 50 community groups to engage in public space design by creating pop-up parks across the City! WASLA is reprising its role as PARK(ing) Day steward and will issue a call for sponsors in June. To sponsor this amazing event, contact Amber Raynsford at [email protected].

Big thanks to the 2014 sponsors— Project Groundwork, GGLO, The Watershed Company, Swift Company, J.A. Brennan, Anchor QEA, SvR Design Company, and Gustafson Guthrie Nichol. Click here for photos of last year’s event.

Do you love tiny parks?
We are looking for individuals across Washington to advocate for PARK(ing) Day in your area! If you would like to bring this one-day celebration of public space to your town, contact Lucas Vannice, Public Relations & Outreach Committee Chair, at [email protected].
