Open Field 2014

The Walker’s green space comes alive this summer as a dynamic place for social and creative exchange. The summer kicks off on June 14 as part of Northern Spark and concludes with the wildly popular Internet Cat Video Festival on August 14. What happens in between is a playful mix of planned and unexpected events in which all forms of participation are welcome. Whether it’s simply relaxing at the picnic tables or joining a round of Drawing Club—Open Field is what we make together.
