About Better Future: Joy + Wellness
We’ve all been through a lot this year. That’s why this January and February, C1 and The Theater Offensive will dedicate our energy toward making space for health, relaxation, and artistically-fueled joy, with virtual, participatory workshops as varied as our community: from Drag Story Hour to skin care consultations, from trivia nights to social justice embroidery circles. You’ve kept us going through the pandemic, and we want to be there for you too.
