On the Road Again: A Record of Calgary's Urban Transformation

Lay Summary 

On the Road Again was a performance art project that acted as a vehicle for discussion and mobilization in response to Calgary's rapid urban growth. During a public workshop, wheels were installed on donated, found and purchased furniture. These newly mobilized objects were moved by volunteers in a parade along sidewalks and public spaces in the city, providing a social space a for conversation about changes in the city. The performance was followed by an open forum discussion. For more details see: http://ontheroadcalgary.blogspot.ca/2007/
