PARK(ing) Day is a annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement, with organizations and individuals (operating independently of Rebar but following an established set of guidelines) creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world. For LA, 2010 will mark the fourth year of participation.
The IIDA Leaders Breakfast is back for its 21st year, featuring speakers, business and design innovators and interior design leaders.

Alison Levine was born with a life-threatening heart condition that precluded her from participating in most demanding physical activities as a child; but, after she had surgery as a teenager, she discovered a passion for mountain climbing. Levine served as the team captain of the first American Women's Everest Expedition, skied across the Arctic Circle to the geographic North Pole, and in January 2008, made history as the first American to complete a 600-mile traverse from west Antarctica to the South Pole.
Shane’s Inspiration: To Eliminate Bias against Children with Disabilities
In 1997, Catherine Curry-Williams and Scott Williams lost their son, Shane Alexander, to Spinal Muscular Atrophy only a few weeks after his birth. Had Shane lived, he would have spent his life in a wheelchair. This tragedy resulted in the creation of Shane's Inspiration, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children with disabilities.
