The Campfire Project
The Campfire Project began at CityStudio, an innovation hub inside Vancouver City Hall, and is continuing through funding and support from the Museum of Vancouver’s (MOV) NeighbourMaker Design Challenge. We want to introduce public firepits as a means to help Vancouverites connect and increase use of Vancouver parks in all seasons. We will be holding several fun and engaging public events this spring to foster dialogue around the possibility of public firepits in Vancouver.
The first event is the Campfire Booth that will be showcased on Thursday May 8th from 2 to 6 pm at the Yaletown farmer’s market. It is an all-ages, interactive event that simulates the traditional campfire experience, taking place within the Tin Can Studio mobile project space. The booth will include a starry sky, a faux campfire, a campfire soundscape and free s'mores.
The second event is called Campfire Stories at Vanier Park and is an all-ages, interactive campfire-like experience taking place outdoors at the North-East corner of the Museum of Vancouver's beautiful outdoor grounds. The event is designed as a fun and free activity where folks can enjoy the friendly feel and the campfire songs and stories one expects from a real fire. It will feature stories, poems and live acoustic music from local artists and will happen from 7:30 – 9:30 on Saturday May 10th.
