Walk, Play, and Be Neighbourly

ActivateYYC 1.0 focused on making public spaces in Calgary a space where Calgarians could walk, play, and be neighbourly. Through interactive art installations, pathway projects, friendship benches, and various other projects, ActivateYYC 1.0 was successful in partnering with volunteers, individuals, and communities to temporarily change public spaces in the City to make them more walkable, playable and a place where Calgarians could come together as a community.

Shortcuts, Catwalks, Mazes, and Mews

ActivateYYC 2.0 took on a new focus: helping communities transform pedestrian connectors — with grants awarded up to $1600. We funded fun, volunteer-driven projects that engaged the community and created meaningful changes to shared spaces. In doing so, we reimagined these spaces across Calgary as places of greater activity and connectivity. Applicants worked through three phases, with support from the ActivateYYC team as needed and inspiration from the #ReimagineCatwalks Playbook. The goal was to engage neighbours in a makeover of a shortcut that is quick, low cost, transformative and engaging.
