Every THU | 1PM | Facebook Event Page Live Feed
Hey parents! Join us on Thursdays after lunch with your kids for a family-friendly Facebook Live Feed drag storytime event featuring some of Baltimore's favorite drag personas.
Before language existed to identify persons whose gender expression and/or sexuality were non-conforming, 19th and early 20th century local newspapers offered tantalizing clues that all was not straight and narrow. A few decades later, the 1930s previewed the openness of recent times before giving way to a darker, more perilous era for LGBTQ+ people in the 1950s. After reviewing these twilight years, this program will look at the beginnings of the current movement toward LGBTQ+ visibility and rights.

As a 20th-century occupational therapist, Dr. William Rush Dunton Jr. saw potential in a popular tradition of needle crafts dating back to mid-19th-century Maryland women. The “wild and untamed” examples of self-expression through the Baltimore album quilt tradition married the therapeutic benefits of community and occupational therapy’s goal of assisting patients’ successful transition back into society.

Dear Educators and Parents,
I am putting together a community poetry project for kids. Adults can play along too.
For several years, I have run an annual poetry writing project. For one month, participants receive a daily writing prompt related to a theme. (In 2014 we wrote in response to Pantone paint colors; in 2019 the theme was Food). The goal is to write and share a newly drafted poem with the group every day. It’s a way of practicing writing with others.
Get up and move, learn, and smile with artists and teachers who are excited to spend time with you! The Arts & Learning Kids TV show brings school lessons to life in your living room every weekend with fun and engaging arts-based learning for kids!
Episodes are tailored to lessons for students by grade levels: Explorers (preK-K), Discoverers (1st & 2nd), and Adventurers (3rd-5th)!
