*What's an intervention?

Interventions are simple, often low-cost community projects or actions that are free, open to anyone, and designed to create positive change, like pop-up parking space parties, plant swaps and seed giveaways, alleyway concerts, community art creation, and neighbourhood potlucks. Interventions like these take place all on one day, in a series of city-wide 100in1Day celebrations that demonstrate the collective power of small actions.

About 100in1Day

100in1Day is part of a growing global movement that is changing how people interact with their cities. Originating in Bogotá, Colombia in 2012, 100in1Day has encouraged hundreds of community-based interventions in the streets, sidewalks, parks, alleyways, public squares, waterfronts, front lawns, porches, and common spaces of cities around the world.

The initiative draws participation from a wide variety of groups including residents, neighbourhood associations, arts and environmental organizations, anchor institutions, local governments, small businesses, and Business Improvement Areas (BIAs).
