We are proud to present a sensory-friendly social gathering inspired by Valentine’s Day. Join us for a silent disco experience at the museum designed specifically for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and those with sensory sensitivities. DJ Naeem will spin a live set of dance classics and will accept musical requests. Rather than playing loud music through speakers, wireless headphones will allow attendees to opt in or out of the soundtrack and control their own volume levels. The Factory will be transformed into an enclosed sensory room for the evening and quiet areas will be provided. Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable, festive attire and to take portraits in the museum’s photo booth. Light refreshments will be served and a cash bar will be available.

Co-presented with The Pittsburgh Center for Autistic Self-Advocacy and Autism Connection of Pennsylvania.
