Tuesday was all about research. We looked up some more details on ribbons and talked more about how we would move forward with the Sites of Apology / Sites of Hope event.
Tuesday mornings always start out with brainstorming.
We’ve been trying to sort out how to make all the Save the City events work as well as possible.
With Sites of Apology / Sites of Hope, we’ve been thinking about how best to recognize all of the places we’re hoping to brainstorm with everyone who comes out in February. I think this is a good picture of the moment that it hit us.
We had talked about getting large ribbons on Friday, but today we found the right ones.
These are serious ribbons and are perfect for what we have in mind.
So we went about making notes on what we’d like these ribbons to look like.
There’s a hot chartreuse — it’s an awesome neon yellow…
Later we went to Green Bean to get some coffee and talk about Thursday’s event at Propeller.
We spent time starting to gather all the answers we’ve received to our questions and started to make a larger list of fill-in-the-blank statements and questions.
We’re trying to come up with a sort of sprawling list of texts and ideas that address the public realm, how we experience it, how we forget about it, and how its used and misused.
Back to the ribbons — later in the evening, I called the fine folks at Centaur Awards. They were really, really professional, and helpful. If only print shops could be so helpful.
And here’s what we’re likely going with — THE ULTIMATE GRAND — with different colours of course. So, another productive and fun meeting!
We’re finalizing all the details for Sunday’s event, and we’re sure it’s going to be a really, really interesting experience to get to hear so many stories about this city. January 24th – 8pm at PHOG — you’ll be there, right? We want to hear your stories about this city!!!!
