Raffle Prizes (tickets on sale at the event — 1 for $5 or 5 for $20)
Free Kids’ Activities

This winter and spring, the above organizations will be collecting alternative and reclaimed materials with the goal of reinventing their use and meaning on May 10. Kids (and adults!) will have the chance to create a fun and beautiful piece of art with local artist Ben Roth using otherwise non-recyclable items. A product of the Reggio Emilia teaching philosophy, Remida is a cultural project that represents an optimistic and proactive way of approaching environmentalism through the arts. Many thanks to the Center of Wonder and First Interstate Bank for supporting Remida 2014!
