“…there’s a gratitude circuit in your brain, badly in need of a workout. strengthening that circuit brings the power to elevate your physical and mental health, boost happiness, improve sleep, and help you feel more connected to other people.” – Dr. Alex Kord
Show your PRIDE and gratitude by sending a FREE note card to a loved one anywhere in the world. Your note will boost YOUR happiness and THEIRS. Bring their mailing address to the PRIDE event and we will provide the rest, including the postage stamp.
COMMUNITY ANIMATION BOOTH
Use the colors of the rainbow to draw, doodle, or paint on provided templates, then capture an image of your creation with Junction Arts & Media’s (JAM) stop-motion software.
JAM staff will compile all of the templates to create a community-made stop-motion animated movie which they’ll share on their social media, cable channels, and YouTube channel!
