The Center for Health Equity (CHE) joins in Pitt PARK(ing) Day with an unique installation addressing the concept of health equity and ideal of a smoke-free campus.
Through creative energy and experimentation, participants in this annual one-day event held on the third Friday of September take an urban parking space--an otherwise dead space in an otherwise busy urban landscape--and turn it into a pop-up "installation" for a day. The event raises awareness about the importance of a livable city and helps people re-think how our streets can be utilized. Rebar, an art and design studio based in San Francisco, started the concept of PARK(ing) Day in 2005; now it is celebrate internationally with over 1000 parking spaces utilized worldwide.
Stop by the Pitt BO Lot (between Oakland Ave. & South Bouquet Street; directly across Fifth Avenue from Pitt Public Health) between 9am-3pm on Friday, September 21, for an interactive experience!
