Arts orga­ni­zation No.9: Con­temporary Art & the Envi­ron­ment is proud to present to No.9 invites you to cel­ebrate the culminating exhib­it fea­tur­ing Imag­ining My Sustainable City, a pi­lot program in collab­oration with the Toronto Dis­trict School Board.

One Grade 7-8 class in each of Toronto’s 44 wards has tak­en part in a four-day, sustainable urban planning and ar­chi­tectural design program. No.9’s Ar­chi­tectural Ed­ucators worked closely with over 1400 students since September, 2011, and brought them through the design process with a deep under­standing of how design relates to place.

Col­lectively, the students’ vi­sions for their sustainable Toronto lead to discus­sions of civic en­gage­ment, governance and living a sustainable lifestyle. “Through this project we had an opportunity to envi­sion all the pos­sibilities for our community in the fu­ture,” says Tene­sha, a grade sev­en TDSB student.

From May 23 – September 22, 2014, the results of the student’s work from all partic­ipating schools will be on display in the Kiln building at Ev­ergreen Brick Works. The exhi­bi­tion will fea­ture photographs, drawings and models cre­ated by the students, pro­viding the vis­itor with a vi­sion of the city as seen through the eyes of its youth.
