Neighborhood Nap Day


Neighborhood Nap Day
SE Reedway St – Ramona St Alley, between 57th and 60th.
Saturday, September 6; 2:00 – 6:00 p.m.
How often do you get time to think and daydream? Yet, arguably, idleness — and the time it affords one to reset and think — is critical for a democratic society. In this effort to “distribute leisure” to our neighbors, you are invited to participate in Neighborhood Nap Day. The alleys of SE Portland — these little slices of lazy wilderness that cut through our neighborhood — offer a unique backdrop for our reveries.
Hammocks, forts and other and sleeping spots will be provided for napping but bringing/making your own is also encouraged. If you want to set up a spot in your alley for neighbors to nap in, please let me know and I can include it on the map.
Sleeping starts at 2:00 p.m and will be done in shifts until 6 p.m. In between naps, talk with neighbors about your thoughts on our neighborhood, provocative ideas, your garden or the weather.
