11:00 am: Create In Community (in-person)

May 16

Enter a place of curiosity and discovery with likeminded people.  Learn how to make both functional and fanciful things while acquiring new hacks to measure and manage materials with little or no sight. Experimentation, problem solving and good conversation pair nicely with found objects, clay, fun papers and other materials to create one of a kind, DIY items for fun and function.

This month, May, let’s break out he air-dry clay and explore hand building techniques to create sculptures and vessels.

6:45 pm: Study Hall: Presented by Emily Hansel (in-person)

May 18

MPACt Center for Art & Dance1625 Bush Street, San Francisco

Study Hall, inspired by a series of public conversations on cultivating equitable workplaces, is performed by four dancer-choreographers who share an interest in forging new models for safety, equity, and sustainability in our contemporary dance field. In its final form, Study Hall can accurately be described as both carefully crafted and highly unplanned. Treading the line between set choreography and improvisational score, Study Hall exemplifies both the world building and dismantling that the artists crave.

The haptic access tour at 6:45pm followed by audio described performance at 7:30pm.

Tickets: $15-$55, plus NOTAFLOF

Call 415-404-9596 to reserve an audio description headset and reserve a spot in the haptic tour.
