Join Us at Mouse City Cloverdale!

We’re teaming up with Cloverdale Mall on a series of community engagements planned around the redevelopment of the mall by QuadReal.  Our team will run a special edition of Mouse City, our popular model city-building program, as a way to gather feedback from the community on their vision for the future of Cloverdale Mall.

Mouse City Cloverdale takes place on Saturday March 9th, 11am -2pm, at the Cloverdale Common located within the mall. FREE Admission. No registration required.

During Mouse City Cloverdale, aspiring builders aged 4 to 12 will construct a model neighbourhood on the site of Cloverdale Mall using recyclable materials to create the buildings and public spaces they wish to see in their city. Participants will also have the opportunity to act as reporters for the Mouse City Times, writing and drawing stories about what they think life in the new community might be like.

Ideas and opinions generated from the event will be prepared in a report by Small Print Toronto and delivered to QuadReal to assist them in the redevelopment process.

FAQs

This event is specifically tailored for families with children between the ages of 4 and 12 however everyone is welcome to join, no registration required.

Recyclable materials will be provided for participants to use to create their vision. HOWEVER we encourage participants to bring cleaned recycled materials to add different textures and explore different ways of building.

Children must be accompanied at all times by a parent / guardian.

A Magical Day With Qin Leng & Friends

Renowned illustrator Qin Leng (centre) unveiled her picture book debut I AM SMALL at our 11th annual Totsapalooza, with Fay & Fluffy’s Drag Queen Story Time (top left), author Emil Sher (top right), and indie rock all-stars The Woodshed Orchestra (bottom), on Saturday, February 2 at Revival.

Watching Qin draw a character and choreographer Ann-Marie Williams (bottom, middle) bring it to life through movement was positively magical. So too were Wanda’s-Pie-in-the-Sky Bakery‘s treats based on Qin’s pictures.
