On the weekend of July 19-20, 2014, Senayah Design and PULP will create another dynamic activity hub at Toronto’s BIG on Bloor street festival in Bloordale. Building on last year’s success with Card Yard, interactive and community-led programming will be curated in a pop-up public realm designed and constructed of repurposed materials. Check out Card Yard 2013 at http://pulpartparty.ca/projects/card-yard/
Their goal this year is to enable collaboration between participating artists and programmers in the development of the space, so that activities and installations can reinforce one another to create a beautiful, comfortable and stimulating space.
Card Yard seeks to present interactive projects stations by artists, architects, poets and social activists, community organizations to create a participation village specifically for Bloordale’s BIG on Bloor Festival. The festival is a high-profile event that saw 85,000 visitors last year, and it keeps growing.
Card Yard runs from 1:00pm to 9:00pm on Saturday, and from 12:00 noon to 6:00pm on Sunday. This event is in partnership with Senayah Design, BIG: Bloor Improvement Group, and Bloordale BIA.
