IMFTO Minecraft World

    Follow the TTC lines to redesign Toronto.

    In partnership with Microsoft Minecraft, It’s My Future Toronto [IMFTO] asked Shannen Guntoro of OCAD U to built a world for youth ages 8-18 to redesign along the Toronto Transit Commission subway and street car lines.

    The IMFTO world will open on January 15, 2021 at 12:00pm and close on February 15, 2021 at 12:00pm.

    The IMFTO World will sleep at 11:00pm and wake up at 9:00am each day.
