Picnic in the Park

August 16, 2018

Winnipeg Boldness staff and volunteers will be attending Picnic in the Park family fun day again this year to connect with community and share information about the project. This year we’ve enlisted the help of our parent guide group members to help us facilitate an activity and provide information and free prizes to families.

In order to evaluate the child centred model in a for informal way, we wanted to come up with an activity that would be fun and inviting, rather than intimidating and commonplace like survey or interview. We’re calling this activity the Wheel of Support! The wheel is covered in elements of the child centred model and is spun to select one of the values. We’ll be asking community members to share places or programs in the North End that they feel embody those values.

Participants will be entered into a draw to win a gift card prize pack, and we’ll have some free prizes for kids as well, like piggy banks and jumbo chalk, so stop by our booth to say hi and get entered for some fantastic prizes!

Picnic in the Park is also free for anyone to attend, so bring the whole family to enjoy some great music and kids activities!
