IWW Convention !! One Big Union.......One Awesome City!

Kidz City Baltimore and the Baltimore IWW Convention Planning Committee are partnering to bring amazingly fun and educational childcare/children's programming to the
2011 IWW Delegate Convention.

Saturday, Sept 3rd – 8:45 am to 8:00 pm
Sunday, Sept 4th – 11:45 am to 8:00 pm
Monday, Sept 5th – 8:45 am to 5:30 pm
* for schedule concerns please feel free to contact us.

Programming: Baltimore IWW and Kidz City have a lot of great ideas and plans for children's activities including radical song writing (in the IWW tradition), sign making, story telling and more. The schedule of the planned activities for the thre days will be posted outside of the childcare space on the first day of convention.

How to participate: It takes a lot of volunteers to keep a kids' space fun. If you'd like to volunteer or if you would like to lead an activity for children please contact Harriet, from Kidz City, by e-mail: You can also participate by bringing the children you care for, or by buying a Kidz Stamp – more info below.

Coloring Book: It's a Kidz City tradition to create a short coloring book for each of the conferences/events that we organize with. We are working hard to provide one for this event in the style of the Little Red Song Book. If you have ideas or suggestions let us know.

Kidz City contact: Please contact Harriet from Kidz City with any questions, suggestions or to register a young person for childcare. E-mail:

Kidz Assessment Stamp: There will be a $10 stamp offered this year that directly funds the childcare space and Kidz City's work. Please consider buying one (or two...) to show your support.
