Family Event | Designing for Healthy Communities
Saturday, February 19
What would your ideal community have in it to keep residents safe and healthy? A fire station? A hospital?
Get creative with the design collective Chicago Mobile Makers and try your hand at designing with community in mind. Workshops will encourage participants to think about problem solving through design. Families will work together to build a custom city that works for all people. As the day progresses, the designed cities will grow and take new forms as more perspectives are included in the process! Discover how Chicago was redesigned and rebuilt following the Great Chicago Fire in our new exhibition City on Fire: Chicago 1871, then grab your hard hat and use your curiosity about our city’s built environment to design a healthy community.
Free with general admission; no reservations required.
