Activating space at Atlas PAC

What a wonderful weekend at Atlas Performing Arts Center‘s 2016 Intersections Festival!

People jumped right in and explored the words, sorting bins, and seesaw. I was thrilled to talk to a wide range of people about ways to use the installation for therapy, diversity training, etc. The community at Atlas, both the folks who work there and the audience members, were so welcoming, respectful, and creative.

Here is a gallery of images from the weekend.

… and figured out a new way to balance the seesaw – with her head! She also gets an endurance prize for staying over an hour with her sister.

All the rocks

The kids loaded up the seesaw and let the filled bowls slide across the middle to get it to balance – a new technique!

The bins got some focused attention as well.
