Storytelling Family Workshop | Urbatecture with urbacraft, in partnership with MOP Foundation
Sunday 3 May, 2.30 – 4 pm

urbacraft is a new educational toy for all ages, designed specifically to create and learn about cities. It’s a building set with the hackability of digital games and the physicality of traditional toys.
Families will collaborate to create a small city together with urbacraft – they will become urban designers for the day, starting by making their own room, then their house, growing to the scale of the street, and the city. They will learn how their neighbourhoods are made of living cells, and about their role in making their city come to life.
