Mission Statement

In filling out the forms for a Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs grant, I was required to provide a mission statement, which I'm sharing here for your reading pleasure:

The mission of People's Parking Lot can quite simply be stated as "activating vacant spaces." Such a broad definition allows us to pursue diverse projects at multiple scales, such as organizing outdoor community garage sales to participating in international performance art events like Park(ing) Day. We locate ourselves at the intersection of public art, activism, and community-building, seeking to engage the public in culturally enriching activities while simultaneously maintaining a critical stance toward the way urban spaces develop.
