Sensory Friendly Sunday August 2022

Stop by the Bentson Mediatheque to watch a short film! The film will loop throughout the program between 8 and 11 am. Capacity is limited to 10 people at a time. This is a relaxed screening with sound reduced, appropriate for all ages. Visitors are free to come and go, move, and otherwise make themselves comfortable in the space. Please maintain a 6 foot distance from people not in your group.

Polar Bear Bears Boredom by Koji Yamamura
Narwhals, otters, and dugongs may be exciting to you, but to a sleepy polar bear they’re just part of another boring day. 2021, Japan, animation in English and Japanese with captions, 7 min.

Sensory note: This film begins with a strobing effect during the opening credits that lasts approximately five seconds.

Now it’s your turn! Visit the Art Lab to create your own artwork. A new project is offered every month.

In August, join teaching artists Phoebe Mol and Candace Ogborn in the Art Lab to create a puppet self-portrait.

Phoebe Mol (she/they) is a teaching artist who draws, makes comics, and works with textiles. They are excited by accessible art spaces and nonlinear storytelling.

She has been an artist at Interact Center for about two years, taking classes, experimenting, and recently focusing on puppet-making. She is excited about characters and worlds that come out of the puppets she creates.
