Craft the City

Part of Urban

Craft with professional artists from Animate Arts Company to create a spectacular city of the future entirely out of cardboard.

What do you want your city to look like in a hundred years time? Will there be skyscrapers or trees, bridges or cable cars?

This participatory installation grows across two days, as people design and build an urban playground of cardboard.

No experience necessary. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
