Providence City Walk Demonstration Day

On Friday, June 15th, grab a roller and follow the lead of one of three artists who have designed murals for three different sites at the intersection of Broad and Public street.  These murals will be painted in tempera and will likely only last a few days – be a part of something fleeting and fabulous!

You can also join in a Flashmob-style dance choreographed by Sokeo Ros, to be launched at 1:30PM on Saturday, June 16th at the intersection of Broad and Public Streets. Learn the moves here!

These events are all part of a “Demonstration Day”, which invites Providence residents to try out and give feedback on plans for the addition of bike lanes, green infrastructure, and public art along Broad Street. 82 people walking or biking on Broad Street were involved in a car crash between 2009 and 2015. The goal of City Walk is to make Broad Street safer and more pedestrian friendly.

If you are interested in participating in arts activities for the City Walk Demonstration Day, please contact Cristina at DiChieraconsulting@gmail.com or just show up and participate!
