The second Sunday of every month is Family Free Day at MODA! So join us on Sunday, March 11 for Spun Stories: Celebrate Read Across America!
Considered to be one of the oldest forms of communication, storytelling is a communal exercise in collaboration. Physical, musical, and at times playful, storytelling passes down information from generation to generation. Through stories, we learn empathy, and as a result, we gain a better understanding of the similarities and differences that exist between ourselves and others.
This Family Free Day, we’re celebrating Read Across America at MODA and combining storytelling with play. Meet us at the Design Bar and we’ll practice stretching our storytelling muscles through an activity led by Jess, MODA’s Public Programming Designer. Put your newly honed storytelling skills to use in the Spun lounge, located in MODA’s back gallery. Bring you favorite book, grab a Spun chair, and get to work spinning your own stories as we mix playful movement with words.
While you're here check out Designing Playful Cities, MODA's newest exhibition that presents a strong case for designing play into urban environments. The exhibit will encourage visitors of all ages to engage in play in their day-to-day activities, and will inspire designers and developers to create playful spaces in our cities, whether by designing proper playgrounds for children or by converting underutilized spaces into fun and friendly places.
