On Wednesday evenings, youth from TP Loblaws Clubhouse at St. Mary’s Catholic School will work with former Artist-in-Residence, Ekow Nimako. He will teach youth his method for sculpting with Lego. As youth are seldom consulted about urban planning, Nimako will provide Power Youth with an opportunity to shape their future community and learn how to consider what makes a city inclusive, accessible and sustainable.
