Less to Enjoy!
Many of the groups that typically have listings in the Access Press Enjoy! pages have suspended activities, have gone to online services or are offering limited services. Please check with a venue or organization before heading out. Contact theaters to see when shows will be rescheduled and if tickets will be honored. With museums, check to see when or if interpreted and sensory activities will continue. Some sensory activities are only offered during the school year.
Many theater companies and arts organizations are offering virtual activities only. Check to see what is available through the Minnesota Access Alliance calendar.
Drama Interaction offers free virtual camps and classes for children, teens and adults this summer. Offerings include Super Hero Theater, Pete the Cat Camp, Adult Theater and Dance, and more. Participants with special needs may find having a parent, sibling or para attend with them to be helpful. Apps used for virtual learning will be SEESAW and ZOOM (both free).
