PARK(ing) Day is back and, as always, it has a fantastic aim: to turn regular old car parks into vibrant pop-up parks for a few hours. It's an international affair, with Brisbane getting involved between 10am–2.30pm on Friday, September 20 on Little Stanley Street.
Mosey on over to South Bank, and you'll find greenery, 40s-era antics, an art-making space and a chill-out zone. You can also pot some plants, step into the world of sustainable fashion, browse a design library and just get comfy on a grassy spot, too. Relaxing, like you would in a normal ol' park, is the aim of the game as much as livening up usually boring patches of road.
If you love music, getting arty and contributing to a collaborative installation, look out for Hands on Art's fun for the day. You can either write your favourite lyrics on the side of a huge box, decorate album covers or make your own — and channel your inner rock or pop star.
