The Office of Engagement is excited to be involved in bringing the first Open Streets ICT (OSICT) to WSU and Shocker Neighborhood, from 1 to 4 p.m. April 16.
The purpose of OSICT is to elevate the quality of life and health of the Wichita community. It does this by promoting healthy and active living, enhancing community connectivity, and building community pride through interaction with local businesses and nonprofit organizations.
The community can help OSICT by becoming a vendor and sharing their department’s, college’s or student organization’s message, fundraising and selling merchandise, or putting together a spin wheel for prizes, raffles, collect information, face paint and more. Or create a fun engaging way to connect and share information with the community by hosting an activity like games, dunk tanks, Zumba, yoga, etc. Community members can also help OSICT by volunteering for the day.
The route is along 17th Street from Oliver Street to Volutsia Street. With access to Fairmount Park to enhance community connectivity and build community pride through interacting with local businesses, organizations and the university community in Shocker Neighborhood.
