Pop-Up in the Park
25 people joined us for Daley Park’s Pop-Up Gathering on September 11, 2019. Residents enjoyed music by Tatiana Crespo as they discussed their favorite memories from the park and what they would like to see for their event next March. Resident artist Halley Willcox facilitated a brainstorming activity using an enlarged map of Daley Park. People were asked to locate a fond memory from the park with a sticky note as well as suggest performances and activities. Many residents love the trees and wish to see events happen within them. They also suggested live painting, drum circles, chalk murals, communal dance performances, and international food vendors.
In Spring 2019, all Tempe residents were invited to fill out community surveys that shared information about their communities identity, their interests in different arts activities that they would like to experience in their park, and an opportunity to provide additional comments about their community or Arts in the Parks.
