Caine’s Arcade Toronto :: Artscape Wychwood Barns, October 6

Calling all Cardboard Creatives!

We’re pleased to announce that the Global Cardboard Challenge is coming to Toronto! Founded by the Imagination Foundation, which was formed after the success of the Caine’s Arcade viral video, the Challenge was created to celebrate the creativity & imagination of kids around the world.

As part of that initiative, over the month of September Lindsay Archibald (The Treehouse Group), Vivien Leung (PechaKucha Toronto), Jennifer Chan (Exhibit Change) and the good folks at the Artscape Wychwood Barns will be working together to encourage children and adults alike to build cardboard creations of all sorts at home and/or at school.

On Saturday, October 6, from 9am-1pm, we invite those same people, young and old, to bring their games to the Artscape Wychwood Barns, turning the 7000sq Barn into a “Cardboard Playdium” where everyone has the chance to experience the fun of showing off and playing cardboard games.

In the meantime, you can check us out by the huge cardboard pegasus at The Stop’s Farmers’ Market each Saturday until the 6th, where we’ll be playing cardboard games, and building our own.
