Introducing placingparks.ca — our new digital toolkit!

This project archive and toolkit has been designed to help artists, funders and agencies develop community-engaged arts projects in parks and public spaces.

placingparks.ca includes a wealth of resources on how to initiate participatory art-making and community-building projects, build successful partnerships and think about park design and use with engagement goals in mind. The toolkit was created in the aftermath of Welcome To This Place. It draws both from MABELLEarts’ 11 years expertise as well as from learnings gathered over the course of our national project. The toolkit is available both in English and in French.

We thank Canadian Heritage for funding this exciting project, which was a joy to put together.

We hope Placing Parks helps you envision artful projects that bring people together in your local park!
