KEEPING OUR LUMINARIANS, ILLUMINAUTS and GLOWers SAFE!!
To Our FOolish Friends,
To limit the potential spread of COVID-19 and other nasty viruses, and help keep those around us healthy and safe, WonderFool Productions is joining the growing list of local partners in Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County who are changing plans.
Gazillions of people make FOOLMoon and FestiFOOLs a foolish tradition each year. With no hand sanitizer in sight, and paper supplies vanishing before our eyes, there are simply not enough HazMat suits to keep us safe.
Our spring celebrations — FOOLMoon and FestiFOOLs – and WFP’s luminary workshops in March at Workantile will not take place as planned.
Can we imagine new ways to be foolishly creative in the midst of these times? We think so. Stay tuned.
We are in touch with our community partners and will keep you informed as they confirm any schedule changes. To date, the following partner programs have been canceled:
Ann Arbor Art Center – all workshops canceled. Visit annarborartcenter.org for updates.
Ann Arbor District Library – all workshops canceled. Visit AADL.org for updates.
Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum – all workshops canceled. Visit aahom.org for updates.
This is an amazing moment for us to call on our collective creativity and make something even more extraordinary together. Let’s make that happen.
Be well FOOLish friends! We are GrateFOol for YOU! Now, go wash your hands…
NEW VIRTUAL EXPERIENCES IN 2020!
FOOLMoon REIMAGINED + FestiFOOLs/Virtual!
AND AS ALWAYS
We have FREE Community Workshops! Cancelled for the time being.
People of all ages are invited to create their own luminary or other foolishness at any of these FREE Community Workshops. You bring YOU and your ideas. We provide everything you need to be successful – teaching artists to inspire and help, materials/supplies, and coffee/snacks.
We can’t wait to see you soon!
