Archikidz is a not for profit organisation, founded by Emma Rees-Raaijmakers in 2012. Archikidz provides a dynamic learning platform for inspiring and educating kids, our future city-makers, about the built environment.
The built environment belongs to everyone and most importantly, our kids. Kids see and understand our communities differently than adults do. Through Archikidz extensive program of education for all kids across the community, we are placing design on the agenda and investing in the future of our cities. Archikidz seeks to instil in participants an understanding that they as an individual have a role to play in shaping the world around them & that the decisions they make can help to create better communities & a more sustainable future.
Archikidz began in Amsterdam, The Netherlands a decade ago as an architectural workshop for kids. Events are now held annually in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Bergen, Barcelona, Buenos Aries, Lisbon & Santiago annually. In October 2012 the inaugural Archikidz event in Australia was held at Carriageworks in Sydney.
