Firehouse Alley Event 1
A week from today, the first event to celebrate and gather awareness of the tentatively named Firehouse Alley will take place. I have been meeting with community members lead by Tom Pantaleoni, owner of Distant Lands Importers in Pioneer Square for the last few months, and we have set up a great event that will tie in with a Nord Alley Party. There will be a light show, a green wall demonstration, music, and local food from 5-9pm.
I will also be exhibiting my findings from the alleys of San Francisco, Chicago, and Detroit, as well as a set of recommendations for the alley that the community and I have come up with on some moving walls constructed of reclaimed pallets. We have a temporary permit and a tentative small sparks grant for this. With your input and attendance, the alley can begin to gather more momentum, and we can potentially begin a survey, and design ideas for its’ transformation!
I would like to thank ABC imaging for its’ kind donations for printing our display boards!
