The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces


The Picnic Club Presents: Movie Night! – Sept 21st 7:30 @ Meg’s Place

Join us for a screening of The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces. The film is the product of William Whyte’s “Street Life Project”. This film and the accompanying book of the same title transformed the urban planning field in the 1980’s and continues to impact the shape of our cities. The film is 1 hour long, and will begin at 8:30 pm.

Bring a snack or beverage to share!

The impetus for this screening arose out of our September 9 meeting, “A Circular Commute,” wherein a moonlit stroll along the Detroit RiverWalk and into Corktown prompted a discussion on the Flâneur and flânerie—aimless wandering—and how our paths are shaped by urban space.

Thanks to Timothy Boscarino for providing the film and to Meg for hosting us in her home/studio!
