Our popular Mouse City program gives kids a chance to explore real-life urban planning issues by constructing model cities out of craft materials. The latest installment, Mouse City Valley, is a partnership with Evergreen Brick Works (EBW) that will address the biggest civic challenge of them all: the environment.
The project will run on four consecutive Sundays from April 8-29 (inclusive), conducted by leading urban thinkers. Each unit takes place 10:30am-1:30pm, RAIN-OR-SHINE. The program takes place indoors. There will a public exhibition of the diorama in the Children’s Garden at EBW on May 6 and 12. FREE With RSVP.
York University’s Jennifer Bonnell (above, photo by Alexander Furneaux) kicked off the program last week, by conducting a guided walk and mapping exercise. This Sunday (April 15), Environmental Architect Annabel Vaughan will help the young urban planners turn that map into a model built out of cardboard and recycled materials.
Over the coming weeks, kids can take part in indigenous story circles with award-winning children’s author Melanie Florence and plan a model community for storybook mice with Broadcaster-author Jane Farrow.
