Visual and performance artists, writers, architects, designers, urban planners and social activists are invited to attend a one-day public intervention workshop. The workshop is a space for artists to design potential interventions. Interventions may take the form of tours, tactical and site performance, temporal installations, video or sound projections, digital platforms, community involved projects, peer-to-peer platforms, print or online publication, or a street event. Ed welcomes artists with no prior public art experience, who are interested in moving from the traditional studio, gallery and theatre space into the urban arena.

Art in Odd Places has been produced in Boston, MA, Indianapolis, IN, Greensboro, NC, and Orlando, FL in the U.S.; St. Petersburg, Russia and Sydney, Australia. AiOP was selected as a representative in the U.S. Pavillion, Spontaneous Interventions: Design Actions for the Common Good at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2012.
