Yarn Bomb

Yarn-Bombing is a tactical and simple way of improving public spaces. Halifax’s Downtown is in the midst of heavy construction, and pedestrian-scale spaces are not very appealing. By incorporating a yarn design on a fence in an unsightly area, we hope to draw more people to the area, increase their sense of community and safety, and counter the negative perspectives of an area while under construction.

On July 26th, 2017 we gathered a group of people in Downtown Halifax to engage in yarn-bombing a chain-link fence, inspiring people to improve public spaces and encourage engagement in their communities.
