Put on your most comfortable party outfit and join us for a sensory-friendly evening of dancing, socializing and artmaking. This event is planned specifically for and with individuals with autism spectrum disorders and those with sensory sensitivities. A live DJ will spin dance classics and take musical requests, and our adjustable wireless headphones will allow participants to choose their own volume levels or opt out. There will be an enclosed sensory friendly area on the first floor where partygoers can decompress or connect in a calm manner.
The Factory underground studio will be open for silkscreen printing and other art projects. Guests can also submit their own designs that will be turned into silkscreens and acetate collages for the event. To submit, email a high-resolution (300 dpi) jpeg image of your art to email@example.com by October 25, 2019.
This event is open to teens and their families from 6–8 p.m. and is 21+ after 8 p.m.
Co-presented with The Pittsburgh Center for Autistic Self-Advocacy and Autism Connection of Pennsylvania
