Resource Description
The Downtown Partnership is using the tenets of tactical urbanism, also known as placemaking, to reimagine public spaces in our Downtown. These temporary measures are designed to start a dialogue to create lasting change.
Opportunity Description
Sounds of Summer is a series that started 3 years ago and runs June through September in downtown San Diego. It’s a series of lunchtime pop-up concerts from 12pm – 2pm on Fridays. This year SOS will run from June 24th through September 16th. The shows rotate throughout Downtown but every week we have a show on 4th & C. This space is extremely boring but I believe it has the potential to be something great. I thought, what better way to create a ‘space’ than to combine music & art. My idea is to brand this space as an ‘Official Sounds of Summer stage”. We have permission to add window clings to the building on the corner and we’ll paint the utility boxes. We are currently talking to the building on the opposite side of the trolley tracks to add art to their construction fencing. Ideally what I’d like out of this is files to create the window clings, the design and painting of the 2 utility boxes, a logo/template to promote the Sounds of Summer event and possibly the design and painting of the construction fencing mural.
