    The Museum of Craft and Design returns to LightHouse.

    Our Mobile Make Art Activation for June features a project inspired by LightHouse community art participants expressing a desire to show work in the community that expresses the diverse ways we seGe the world beyond the label of blindness. Join us to create a collage square using tactile materials that will be integrated into an interactive collaboration. You will also have the opportunity to share a bit of your story with MCD staff who will include it on the back of your piece, readable with a Pen Friend. The finished work will travel with the Make Art program throughout San Francisco where people of all ages and abilities will have the chance to experience it haptically and audibly. This is a great chance to be seen and heard in a unique way. We hope to generate at least nine squares. Please consider sharing your voice and your wisdom to help bring the project to life.

    Circle up and make a joyous noise! Bring your favorite drum or sound-maker, and we will have others to loan. Everyone will have a chance to share out loud the rhythm of their heart and soul and invite the group to collaborate on creating a bold and bright soundscape forged by the wisdom of community.

    Following the drum circle, let’s take a break at noon for lunch (bring your own) as we ride the afterglow of drumming together and enjoy some gentle conversation. Then, let’s create rain sticks from tubes, chicken wire and found materials to create a softer, gentler sounding experience.

    Wear comfortable clothes and bring a lunch.

    At 2:30, you will leave the Lighthouse with a spring in your step and a rain stick in hand.
