TransformALLEY, launch event
Green Alley Project Launch in collaboration with Art and the City

Fri Sept 20 | 5pm
The Pioneer Gallery, 117 8 Ave SW
Cash bar

How can downtown alleys be converted from uninhabitable service corridors into viable amenity-scapes for the public and downtown businesses?

Join us at the unveiling of the Green Alley Project, a three-year research partnership between the UCalgary’s School of Architecture Planning and Landscape and the Calgary Downtown Association operating out of the City Building Design Lab.

The Green Alley will be “ground zero” of the weekend’s events: where the new GAP installations, sketch crawl gallery display, new BUMP murals and the AATC “art walk” collide. You can explore the Green Alley installation by entering through the Pioneer Gallery or the breezeway to the Le Germain Hotel. This first year installation by several SAPL faculty members and students will feature innovative work to explore what can be done with challenging urban spaces to make them more green and more vibrant places for people. Join us on Friday night to celebrate the kickoff event by the downtown business community, the arts community and the University of Calgary.

RSVP for this free event: https://go.ucalgary.ca/transformalleyparty

This project is generously supported by the Calgary Downtown Association.
