Adventures in Cardboard

Adventures in Cardboard seeks to re-inspire creative outdoor play with city-bound youth in uniquely play-focused arts workshops. In Adventures in Cardboard, artists and children take inspiration from the natural world to create their own fantastic places to inhabit and explore. We know that natural spaces open the imagination, and in turn the imagination can open new respect and longing for the natural world. From the work of Richard Louv and others describing “Nature Deficit Disorder” we know children are smarter, healthier and happier when they have time for semi-structured play in natural places.
