CITE: Building Skate Sculptures Workshop with Gord Hardie
August 5 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Bentway and Build for Bokma are teaming up for CITE, a summer-long celebration of skateboard arts and culture. Starting July 7, CITE will also offer a variety of free workshops including learn to skateboard clinics for youth, building skate sculptures, videography, screen printing, and designing skateboards.
This summer, our Skate Trail transforms into an art installation/skatepark with Semblance, skateable sculptures conceived and constructed by Build for Bokma which create a 3D terrain for boarders to ride on. Looking to make your very own skate sculptures? Join us at The Bentway as Gord Hardie teaches you how!

The Toronto Tool Library
The Toronto Tool Library is the first large scale project of The Institute for a Resource-Based Economy (IRBE), a registered Canadian non-profit organization based in Toronto. IRBE works at the intersection of economics and the environment by challenging people’s perceptions of ownership and our relationship to the Earth’s resources. Today’s dominant economic system has created unprecedented crises that exploit people and our planet. IRBE envisions a world that responds to these crises by sharing resources, creating resilient projects and communities, motivating us to our highest potential.
