I Wish This Was

I Wish This Was is a combination art project and public service announcement, letting people share what they wish an empty store-front could be in their neighbourhood -- maybe even inspiring a new business.

Many cities are full of vacant storefronts and people who need things. These stickers are an easy tool to voice what you want, where you want it. Just fill them out and put them on abandoned buildings and beyond. The stickers are custom vinyl and they can be easily removed without damaging property. It's a fun, low-barrier tool to provide civic input on-site, and the responses reflect the hopes, dreams, and colorful imaginations of different neighborhoods.
