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.
