Once Around the Web: Open Streets!

Remember Summer Streets 2013? Weren’t they great?

Did you know that our Summer Streets Program is a part of a wider movement to open up streets around the world? It’s true and here’s a secret…we’re already starting to plan for 2014! But until we have more info, you should check out this video from StreetFilm.org!

The Rise of Open Streets” examines the open streets movement from myriad perspectives — how it began, how events are run, how they shape people’s perceptions of their streets, and how creating car-free space, even temporarily, benefits people’s lives. And it looks not only at big cities like Los Angeles, but smaller ones like Fargo, Berkeley, and Lexington.
