Gathering people during fun events to recreate link in the public space
The experience of city life can quickly be moody and lonely. To remedy this, Charlie Todd launched, in 2001, Improv 'Everywhere: an organization whose objective is to implement playful and public "happenings" to brighten the daily life of passers-by and reconnect them to others. Series of "high five" in the subway, days without pants or participatory dance classes, they bring together up to 2000 or 3000 people to regain control of the public space.
