Join Boston-based social justice project for kids Wee the People and Company One Theatre co-founder and director Summer L. Williams for an interactive story time and workshop to explore the activism in a children’s book and in C1’s upcoming production can i touch it?
Inspired by Lorraine O’Grady’s “Art Is…”, an art installment that featured informal photo portraits of Black Americans holding gold frames, celebrate Black hair during this workshop as you design and decorate a gold frame to highlight your look or the people important to you.
Using this frame, you can take a portrait at our instant Polaroid station to either bring home or have it on display during Company One’s can i touch it? at the Strand Theatre!
