This December we will not only wish for peace in the New Year, but we will unite with neighbors to exhibit a shared commitment to honoring the ideas of respect for diversity and harmony throughout humankind. We will celebrate the right to use our voices and demonstrate a desire to live in a fair world through an energetic session of music, stories, and poster-making activities prior to kicking off our neighborhood’s annual March for Peace, spearheaded by the Small Idea School that will begin from Word Up community bookshop.
Join us for a fun filled family day of art exhibitions, art-making, and more!
This PLAYDATE features words, music, movies, dance and storytelling. There’s something for the entire family in almost every creative discipline highlighting the diversity of our neighborhood as we celebrate the holiday season.
