We’re partnering with Cloverdale Mall on a series of community engagements. Our Director of Urban Planning Education, Alexander Furneaux, will run a special edition of Mouse City, our popular model city-building program, as a way of gathering public feedback about the redevelopment of the mall by Quad Real.
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.
This event is specifically tailored for families with children between the ages of 4 and 12 but everyone is welcome to take part.
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.
