Pole Dancing in the Street

The Urban Guide for Alternate Use points to a campaign by a group called Varsity of Maneuvers that reuses street poles for pole dancing.

"Varsity of Maneuvers has an impressive portfolio of projects and research exploring our shared environments, and particularly our movement in shared space. The first one that really jumped out was their re-use of street sign posts as structures for pole dancing."

By placing simple "Approved for Pole Dancing" stickers on streetpoles, the group is trying to encourage people to think about different ways to interact with the infrastructure around them.
