Rhode Island, USA

As part of the “PopUp Providence” initiative, the Providence Redevelopment Agency and Department of Planning and Development installed two “Before I Die” boards in Kennedy Plaza and at Grant’s Block in downtown Providence. Serving as a forum for passers-by to share their “bucket-list” wishes with the community, the walls have created a vibrant atmosphere of civic engagement. The walls will remain in these two locations until December 31, 2013, when they will be taken down for the winter months. In March 2014, the walls will reappear in different locations.

I want to see my daughter grow up to be a successful woman.

I want to help teach tolerance.

I want to see the northern lights.
