Free City Makers event for children continues this week


The fun, creativity and learning continues with the City Makers project this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Metropolitan (MET) within the new Maroochydore City Centre Project.

City Makers is a collaborative project between the award winning Wildlings Forest School, project Fort Awesome and the MET which encourages children aged 5-12 years don the tools and build a city over a three week period. 

SunCentral activation manager Bronwyn Adams said the program commenced last week and the feedback from children and parents was very encouraging.

“We had a great turn out last week and it was wonderful to see so many kids of all ages create their own structures collaboratively to build the various places within a city. The beauty of this program is that children work with experienced operators such as Wildlings Forest School and project Fort Awesome who provide all the tools and guidance so all the children need to do is get creative.”

“Best of all children can come and go from 3.30pm any day throughout the program, giving parents and friends an opportunity to relax, enjoy a picnic, music and refreshments from the bar run by volunteers at the Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance,” Bronwyn said.

This week will see participants undertake a range of activities including building a music wall from upcycled materials, on Friday they will make a picture frame and a piece of art to hang in our gallery and Saturday concludes with making catapults and wildflower bombs.

This week parents are encouraged to grab their family and friends and while the kids are hard at work, they can relax and enjoy live music from Toby Carter (Thursday), Andrea Kirwin (Friday) and Hope D (Saturday) from 4-7pm and enjoy a cold a drink from the bar and bring a picnic dinner.

This is a free event held from 3.30pm-7pm this Thursday, Friday & Saturday. Best entry to the MET is via Aerodrome Rd entry to First Ave and follow to the corner of South Sea Islander Way within the new Maroochydore City Centre project.

Participants can opt in and opt out over the three week program, that concludes 24th January. For more information visit:
