Morning at the Museum is a Smithsonian program that provides access to a museum for individuals with cognitive and sensory processing disabilities by providing pre-visit materials, early entrance for registered families, gallery scavenger hunt, design activities, and a "Take a Break" space.

Saturday, June 16, 9:00–10:30 a.m.

In this special workshop, participants will engage in a hands-on theatrical puppet performance and in a design activity with Cecilia Arana and Mindy Pfeffer from NYC Kids Project.

NYC Kids Project is a social justice arts organization advocating empathy, acceptance, and inclusion. Performances and classroom programs use theatrical puppets, storytelling, sign-language, adaptive equipment and facilitated dialogue to focus on character development and anti-bullying issues. Audiences are encouraged to examine attitudes surrounding disabilities and differences, fostering empathy and awareness of commonalities.

This program is free and for all ages. Pre-Registration Required. To register, email [email protected] or call 917.809.6732.
