Amy Shostak, the ubiquitous Artistic Director of Rapid Fire Theatre, is organizing what promises to be another entertaining, meaningful and engaging event: Edmonton’s Slow Flash Mob. Inspired by a trip to China, where park life is part of the country’s cultural fabric, Shostak is looking to bring the same flair for the outdoors to Edmonton. This event is important, because it enhances the vibrancy of Edmonton’s downtown, while ensuring that Edmonton becomes a more inclusive city, for both the young and old. This definitely makes one think of compassion, which is captured beautifully here.
The event takes place on July 20 at Louise McKinney Park, from 12-4 pm. That’s still a little far away, but make sure to save the date in your calendars. It’s an intergenerational event, organized in conjunction with Creative Age Edmonton. Though their Indiegogo campaign just finished, any additional monetary contributions probably help.
