The Landfill Mutant VS. <INSERT YOUR SCHOOL HERE>

In celebration of our 30th Anniversary, we have created a brand new program, more hands-on than ever before, with a much smaller carbon footprint.

 

The Landfill Mutant vs. <Insert Your School Here> is a hilarious and perilous play written for grade 5-7 classrooms to produce and perform for their communities. The play comes with 4 support booklets: a Study Guide and Director’s Guide for the teachers and a Research Manual and Design Guide for the students. Throughout the 2021-2022 school year, 30 schools across Canada will partner with Green Kids, as we provide guidance and mentorship to help make each production fun, fulfilling, and fabulous!  This program will be free to these 30 schools; our hope being they will use their existing budget to enhance environmental initiatives for their school.

 

This program is also offered in French, as Le mutant maléfique de la décharge dégueulasse vs (nom de votre école).

Sidewalk Soirées

Sidewalk Soirées with Fete Jockey.

 

We are proud to be partnering with Fête Jockey this summer to produce socially distanced, outdoor programming for family gatherings and birthday parties. 

Let us bring Wild Wild Wilderness to you!  Wild Wild Wilderness tells the story of one kid's accidental effect on a nearby forest and its creatures.  We get to know about the animals, their habitat and how they spend their time, as they try to solve the mystery of ‘the golden shiny thing’ - while narrowly escaping the dangers this human-made object presents.  But animals (and trees) are smart, and they teach the child a few valuable lessons.  Performed by two actor/storytellers and armfuls of adorable puppets, Wild Wild Wilderness demonstrates the connections between habitat, wildlife, and human activity. Bookings are being done through Fête Jockey.

Inspired by the Science Curriculum, Green Kids’ love of theatrics, and Mother Nature herself, these workshops will lead students on an exploration of what those 3 Rs really mean and how young and old can make them part of their everyday lives. 

 

Schools can book an English or French online workshop. 1hour= $100

Coming Back Soon!

Eco Tour

Book a Target Zero Eco Kids Tour of the Forks

Target Zero Tours.jpg

An interactive, educational, and theatrical look at some eco-friendly initiatives at The Forks. This 60-minute walking tour teaches kids how to minimize their carbon footprint as they see, learn about, and physicalize biofuel, mass composting, geothermal technology, the 3Rs and more! Most appropriate for Grades 3-7, each tour can accommodate up to 30 school children. They are offered rain, shine or snow.

Les tournées françaises et anglaises commenceront le jour de la Terre, le 22 avril.​​ Learn more about The Forks and their Target Zero Program. Learn more about Multi Material Stewardship Manitoba (MMSM)

 
Guerillas at the Zoo

Assiniboine Park Conservancy and Green Kids Inc. have created short "zoo skits" focusing on the conservation, research and animal care happening at Assiniboine Park Zoo. Done “Guerrilla theatre” style, audiences never know when these wacky, yet informative characters will appear.

IN DEVELOPMENT

Bike and Circuses!

A family-friendly, outdoor event celebrating active transportation and our connection to the environment through circus arts, dance, music, physical theatre, and clown.  Designed for people of all ages, audiences will choose to walk or roll (bikes, scooters, skateboards, etc.) a designated route through Winnipeg parkland, stopping to take in at short performances along the way.  The circus theme will lend itself to tongue-in-cheek parallels to climate change and other environmental issues. A great way to take in some art, exercise, and be eco-minded!

Residency Program


Ever wanted to have a week devoted to science through drama? So have we!


Our goal is to create a residency, where the Green Kids will come and work with all the classes in your school to learn how to be “green” through theatre. Having more time at one school means getting to dive deeper into the concepts of what “being green” really means.

New and Improved Eco- tours of The Forks

 

Have you been on an Eco Tour of the forks?


You may have noticed that things have improved on The Fork’s mission on Target Zero. Because they have made their return on geothermal cooling and heating, they have invested that money on new initiatives! Join us soon on our new and improved Eco tour of the Forks, now 75 mins, and another stop along the way!

Ce n'est pas tout en anglais! Nos tournées Objectif Zéro sont aussi offertes en français! Puisque la Fourche a récupéré leurs investissements sur le système géothermique, ils ont commencé de nouvelles initiatives. Les tournées françaises et anglaises commenceront le jour de la Terre, le 22 avril.
