Join for a family-friendly exploration of Deep Ellum. We'll gather found text, images, and field notes as we scout this exciting neighborhood for clues about local history, architecture, culture, and art. We'll explore colorful murals and landmarks, pop through interesting doors to visit unique shops and stops, and playwriting games to transform our findings into poetry. We'll begin our excursion at a meeting point soon to be announced, and end by sharing a meal at a local restaurant, and sharing poems in a flash reading. Our adventures are designed to spark lively conversations and fascinate parents and younger adventurers alike. Participants should be old enough to take part in an afternoon of exploring, writing, and covering significant ground on foot -- we suggest ages ten and up. Wear sunscreen and comfortable walking shoes, and plan on pocket money for periodic snack stops and a meal out. You might also like to bring your favorite lucky pen or pencil, though we'll have some handy as well. Each participant will go home with a unique handmade book full of images, observations, and writings created on this exciting day!

Please note: All youth must be accompanied by an adult.
