Mass Creativity 2023

We invite you to…THE REALM OF JOY! 

Mass Creativity 2023 is a collective art making and community building program for San Diego communities. This year’s 11th annual Mass Creativity program titled, The Realm of Joy, is inspired by artist Wes Bruce’s, The Wonder Sound.  Through Bruce’s vision of world building and activating the power of wonder and imagination, the Museum has developed a series of free community workshops that take place at seven organizations throughout San Diego County. The Realm of Joy workshops are an ode to the vibrancy of our communities and ultimately, are designed to encourage play, imagination, and collective art making.

Each community workshop is crucially important in the journey to The Realm of Joy, the world that will open on Mass Creativity Day, Saturday June 24! This event will be a grand celebration of the artworks created by San Diego communities and will include music and dance performances, food vendors, and free admission to The New Children’s Museum! 

This year, we are grateful to collaborate with the following organizations to bring The Realm of Joy to life: 

Barrio Logan College Institute
Casa Familiar
City Heights Weingart Public Library
Skyline Hills Public Library
The Hillcrest Youth Center,
through The San Diego LGBT Community Center
Solutions for Change

*Skyline Hills Library and City Heights/Weingart Library’s community workshops are open to the public. All other locations are by invitation only from the participating community center.
