2nd Annual Cardboard Challenge Children's Creativity Museum San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - The Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco joins thousands of volunteers and organizations around the world in hosting a Global Cardboard Challenge event on Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Kids of all ages are invited to bring their innovative ideas to life as they imagine, create and share their creations with participants around the globe.

Anything is possible during the cardboard challenge, according to Jill Slagter, Education and Innovation Manager for the Children’s Creativity Museum. “Just grab a cardboard box and be ready to think and create outside of the box.”

The Global Cardboard Challenge celebrates the journey of now 10-year-old Caine Monroy and film director Nirvan Mullick, whose documentary, Caine’s Arcadeintroduced Monroy’s handmade cardboard arcade and innovative spirit to the world. Thousands of volunteers and organizations spanning 36 countries have signed up to host and promote Global Cardboard Challenge events.

“A global community has come together because of Caine’s Arcade,” said Nirvan Mullick, director of the Caine’s Arcade films and partner at Interconnected creative agency.  “The goal is not only to help kids build what they can imagine, but to also encourage them to imagine the world they can build.”

The Global Cardboard Challenge will be hosted in the Imagination Lab of the Children’s Creativity Museum. Admission to the museum is $11 for visitors, and free for members and children under two years of age. To learn more about this event and to RSVP, visit www.creativity.org.

The Children’s Creativity Museum is an multimedia art and technology museum for kids. Our mission is to nurture the 3C’s of 21st-century skills – Creativity, Collaboration and Communication – in all youth and families. We believe that the success of the next generation hinges not only on what they know but on their ability to think and act creatively as global citizens.

The Children’s Creativity Museum is located at 221 Fourth Street in San Francisco. The museum is open Wednesday-Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm during the school year and Tuesday-Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm during the summer.
