CityKidz Mini Series: Project Red & Blue


CityKidz and RealBold Media are partnering on a narrative video project to add a new dimension to the CityKidz children’s program for ages 6-11.

CityKidz is a Hamilton based non-profit that exists to increase resiliency and inspire BIG dreams for Canadian children living in low-income communities. They provide inspirational experiences and nurture personal relationships. Through their programs, they instil positive values and morals into the lives of children, help build a solid foundation for their future and inspire each child to make positive life choices. CityKidz programs are designed with evidence based research and ongoing tracking to ensure CityKidz is making a true difference in the lives of children.
CityKidz programs are attended by thousands of children across programs in Hamilton, Ottawa and Regina. For this project CityKidz and RealBold Media will be producing 10 episodes at 14 minutes each that will be shown across Canada and be aired digitally in a webisode format.
