Urban Development

Our Urban Development Action Team is passionate about city-building. It manages VivaCity, an annual urban development showcase, plus other community projects – shaping Halifax’s built environment through education and advocacy.

Recent activities:

  • Ran the seventh annual VivaCity event, with Sonja Miokovic,  co-founder & Global Advisor of Youthful Cities, a social enterprise leading a global movement towards youth-led data-driven urban regeneration.
  • Created the fun and whimsical Red Swing initiative.
  • Managed the Barrington Benches streetscape project, with a built-in art installation by students from NSCAD.
