Activate Downtown Brampton

HomeActivate Downtown Brampton

Activate Downtown Brampton is a series of interactive installations and activations taking place in Downtown Brampton’s laneways and public gathering spaces from May to October 2022. The project is a collaborative partnership between 8 80 Cities,​ The City of Brampton​, and the Downtown Brampton Business Improvement Area​.

The Activate Downtown Brampton program is funded through the My Main Street Community Activator Program and is supported by the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario.

Vivian Lane in downtown Brampton, is being transformed into a more vibrant laneway with colourful artwork, movable seating, more plants, shade and programming! Local Brampton artist Abiola Idowu is transforming the lane with a bright, bold and colourful ground mural that reflects the objectives of Activate Downtown Brampton.
