100in1Day is a global festival of civic engagement! 100in1Day encourages individuals, communities or other groups to take part in simple, temporary, fun placemaking projects on with the goal of getting 100 projects in one day. This event provides a chance for Edmontonians to share their love for their city by participating in small projects that spark conversation and create inviting places.
We submitted a project this year and decided somewhere in the river valley would be a meaningful place for us to make an artful intervention. We love working with textiles so we created canvas flags with a message (“Are you listening to the river whisper?”) written out with an eclectic mix of collected fabrics.
