Urban Planet: Victoria’s Street Pianos


Urban Planet is a daily roundup of blogs from around the world dealing specifically with urban environments. We’ll be on the lookout for websites outside the country that approach themes related to urban experiences and issues.

In Victoria, BC this month, two temporary street pianos will be installed at downtown intersections for pianists and passersby to tickle the ivories. The project was spearheaded by sixteen-year-old Alastair Kierulf who arranged the necessary permits. Kierulf’s project was inspired by the Play Me, I’m Yours project which has roots in Birmingham, England and will be travelling to Toronto this summer. (The Globe and Mail)
