Design Museum Mornings with Marina Seevak, Founding Director of The Beautiful Stuff Project. 

Marina will share her award-winning early childhood curriculum that depends on the creative reuse of materials and brings joy, engagement, creativity, and profound learning to hundreds of young children every week in local urban public school classrooms. At this event, Marina will inspire you to impact access to play, the arts, and design thinking in early childhood classrooms.

Join us in June for Design Museum Mornings at Red Thread + Steelcase for a great conversation about how design can change early childhood behavior.
