The recent spotlight on Canada’s 150th anniversary prompted us to wonder: How would Toronto’s transformation over the past 15 decades be reflected in its twin urban hub for storybook mice, Mouse City?
Leading urban affairs writers such as Matt Blackett, Adil Dhalla, Jane Farrow, Jay Pitter, Rani Sanderson and Stephen Shapiro will conduct five consecutive model city-building sessions, each one based on a 30 year period in Toronto’s history from 167 to today. These local luminaries will also serve as Mayors of Mouse City.
Urban planners aged 3-10 can explore local history and create cities out of craft materials at Mouse City Chronicles in the Toronto City Hall Rotunda, as part of the Doors Open festival (May 27-28).
Stay tuned for a complete schedule.
