Join WE EVENTS, @Urban Ohana for the next Cocktails & Conversations event, Building Communities of Kindness: Normalizing Differences.

This event will focus on The Nora Project's mission to teach empathy by sparking friendships between students and their peers with disabilities. Learn ways to build empathy by recognizing and naming emotions. Parents and educators can help teach children empathy by explaining their own emotions during significant events and point out the connection between events and emotions.

All attendees will have the opportunity to make a DIY Emotion Spinner as a resource to take home. Wine and light apps will be served.

The Nora Project Presents: Tic Tac Tock by Mrs Flower-UK/Belgium

Physical Theater Festival is thrilled to be partnering with The Nora Project to host a world-class children's clown show. This event will be sensory friendly, inclusive live theater for children of all abilities and their families.

Tic Tac Tock is a prize winning story told by Mrs. Flower about when she was a little girl. She explains what a day is like "over there" in France in her unique and humorous style. Tic Tac Toc is a celebration of music, song, and language in both French and English. Mrs. Flower tells her tale while playing over 10 instruments as well as the sumptuous use of audience participation, circus, magic and clowning. This show has charmed children as well as families all over Belgium and France. Rachel Ponsonby (Mrs. Flower) has performed for over 25 years in circuses around Europe as well as in theaters, cultural centers, and concerts halls. She has recorded several CD's and continues to create new shows.
