PopUP: Hybrid commUNITY

October 27 - November 25 2021

Located Calgary Downtown at Good Neighbour    

Project Description

Projects involved:

The hybrid commUNITY pop-up is a community engagement project led by three RPI research activities: TALON – Teaching and Learning Online Network, TUC Tactical Urbanism Calgary, and LTC Letters to Council.This first pop-up of a series collaborates with The Good Neighbour, Calgary’s first pay-what-you-can thrift store located in the Downtown (5th ave SE / 1st SE). We will be accessible and engaged with the public for five weeks starting on October 27th through to November 26th. The goal of the hybrid commUNITY pop-up is to activate, engage with, and better understand the Calgary community and its highly diverse fabric by creating a space for conversations. The various elements of the pop-up aim to encourage those passing by The Good Neighbour to tell us what would make their community and environment a better space.
