Join us in Downtown Vancouver for Vancouver's first #POPCrawl! 

#POPCrawl is a choose your own adventure exploration of Vancouver public space. The free event will kick off at the 800 Block of Robson Street (south plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery) with food trucks, music and some surprise activities. Stop by our Launch Party to grab something to eat and a #POPCrawl Passport. Then set out to see how many sites you can explore in one evening! 

We've curated the sites, and planned surprise activations at each of them, animated especially this evening. An online map of sites is also available here. Can't make it to the Launch Party? No problem, swing by any of our sites to pick up your #POPCrawl Passport and start your journey there. 

The POP Crawl will wrap up at the Pendulum Gallery with a special celebration for the Vancouver Public Space Network's 10-year "Time and Place" Anniversary Party.

#POPCrawl is a celebration of public space, inspired by Vancouver Placemaking Week. Placemaking Week will run fromSeptember 12 – 17th. As more than 1,000 delegates from around the world gather in Vancouver, we want to showcase our city's downtown public spaces and give our residents a chance to engage with them and each other! Increasingly we are understanding how important urban design is in creating healthy communities. Be sure to join us for #POPCrawl to have fun and learn more.

Teaser: a highlight will be the new ‘re-imagined’ laneway on Hastings West behind the Birks Building.
