We invite our families, friends, and the whole of the Northwestern community to participate in the events of the day, which will include sensory drama workshops led by our cohort of Seesaw teaching artists and a panel discussion with professionals working in the field of inclusive arts.

Seesaw Theatre Presents: Lunchbox

Winter 2017

Location and Date/Time TBA

Seesaw Theatre is excited to announce our brand new winter quarter event: Lunchbox! Join us for this day-long family workshop that will strive to create meaningful, arts-initiated interactions between children with physical and cognitive differences and their parents and siblings, build support networks for parents, and siblings, and provide a multi sensory theatrical experience in which the whole family can participate. Our morning will start with siblings, parents, and children splitting up into groups. These groups, led by our teaching artists, will work together to construct family "lunch boxes"— interactive, multi sensory boxes filled with memories and materials important to each family. At noon, families will reconvene for lunch, while our teaching artists and designers assemble the morning’s crafts into the finished lunch boxes. These completed crafts will provide a centerpiece for the afternoon’s multi sensory theatrical adventure, designed to foster bonding between siblings, parents, and children.
