Being house-bound continues, but so do the wonderful things for us to be involved with. Talented artists, local community members, and hundreds of people across the globe are at home. Against it all, though, we are finding ways to connect to one another!
One of the strongest convictions we have at Enigmatic Events Collective is that things are better together! These weekly lists are a way for us to connect to you, to our community, and to the rest of the world. During times when it seems like we are alone, it is vital to feel a sense of inclusion! While you might not be joining a sport, watching, learning, dancing, and creating with others can help you feel closer (instead of socially distant!)
With this in mind, please enjoy this week’s list of things to enjoy from home!
March 27th- Have you been keeping creative while cooped up? Mo Willems, author and illustrator of popular childrens’ books such as Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and Knuffle Bunny, has started a lunchtime doodle channel! Join Mo weekly as he teaches simple tactics for daily doodles.
March 28th- There is something about the magic of being read a story. Well, now you can join the Enchanted Fables princesses this weekend for live storybook readings and activities! Saturday at 1 pm visit with the fairest princess and Sunday at 1 pm, don’t forget your glass slippers. Stay updated with their page to keep up on future events!
March 29th- Social isolation has some of our creativity pretty stumped. The Belfry Theatre in Victoria is offering a collection of COVIDeos with answers to the question “how do we create theatre together in a time of physical distancing and self-isolation, and what form can that theatre take?” Join at 7pm tonight and stay for the talk-back at 8:15pm.
March 30th- We won’t stop telling you how great roleplaying is, but we know some of you would rather listen to your RPGs. Podcasts are popping up from all over! Some of our favourites are the local NerdsEtc, the musically talented BomBARDed, and the ever present Critical Role.
March 31st- Love Harry Potter? Like puzzles? Need some escapism? This Hogwarts-themed online escape room is designed by a Youth Services Librarian at Peters Township Public Library in McMurray, PA! Enjoy the wizardry of the great internet.
April 1st- Ivy League schools are incredibly prestigious, and now you can attend one from home! Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton, and Yale are all offering online options for FREE!
April 2nd- Become a literary legend. These abridged versions of popular books are sure to make you laugh, and maybe even learn something new.
If you have suggestions on what should come next, let us know!
