“Give away what you’ve got!” Papergirl was originally started by Aisha Ronniger in 2006. It is an art project in which paper art is given away to unsuspecting people around Berlin via bicyclists. Over the years it has spread to other cities and now there is a Papergirl Vancouver. If you want to submit your artwork or be a bicycle delivery person jump over here.
I dug up the video I posted back in 2009, watch it below!
I’m really excited to team up with Victory Gardens Vancouver for this giveaway. Lisa, Sam and Sandra are challenging the way our city uses space through urban farming!
They’ve hooked me up with two really cool giveaways:
1) Two Tickets to Old Faithful & Victory Gardens Workshop
This is a container gardening workshop and the focus of this event will be on tomatoes and how to grow your own pizza! The workshop takes place on June 9th, from 9:30 – 11:00AM and each participant will walk away with a handmade cedar box planted with tomato and basil.
More info here and here.
2) Victory Gardens and Collage Collage Handmade garden Kit
This kit features a handmade cedar box, drainage rock, earth, seeds, row markers, decorating supplies and instructions on how to grow your own food.
If you’d like to snag either of these prizes we want to see your best “Vegetable Still Life”. Snap a photo and leave a comment below with a link to it. You can use a service like imgur to do it. If you want some inspiration: here, here, here, or here.
We’ll pick two winners on Thursday, June 7th!
These are people who don’t even live in our city trying to make it more awesome. Help them out!!! Watch the video below!
“Trace Heavens” is a series of gorgeous light installations by James Nizam. Even though he is a friend of mine I feel I am being completely unbiased when I say these are some of the most beautiful images I’ve ever posted on Booooooom. To create these images James painstakingly made incisions into the structure of a house to capture and manipulate sunlight into light sculptures.
