Viva Vancouver Co-design was an outdoor demonstration involving drop in participants and pedestrians. Sometimes we had two participants and sometimes five or six. And occasionally people made their own drawing! We would ask "Would you like to make a drawing?" More than one participant who had "only 10 minutes" stayed for more than an hour! Down the street there was Brazilian dancing and street food. Cyclists and skateboarders passed us as we drew. It was a lively party! The Theme of the co-design was Transportation. Images were collected as part of the Vancouver 2040 transportation plan. note that the ideas of people were included in transportation policy for the City of Vancouver!!
