MTCC ‘Creativity on the Spectrum’ aims for inclusivity

Mosaic Templars Cultural Center - Wednesday, September 28, 2016

As part of a broader initiative to make the museum more inclusive, Mosaic Templars Cultural Center (MTCC) will host “Creativity on the Spectrum” on Oct. 11.

Creativity on the Spectrum is an event designed to make the museum experience accessible for persons with sensory processing difficulties. Visitors can take part in a special self-guided tour of the museum’s fall exhibit, “Treasured Memories: My Life, My Story,” as well as an art program in the museum classroom specially designed for patrons with autism or other sensory needs.

“At MTCC, we are dedicated to an inclusive Arkansas and believe it’s important to celebrate the history of the African-American experience in Arkansas with all Arkansans,” Christina Shutt, MTCC director, said.

The evening’s activities are free and geared toward children and teenagers, but all are welcome to participate. Creativity on the Spectrum will be Oct. 11 from 6:30-8 p.m. at MTCC, 501 W. Ninth St. in Little Rock.

Families who are interested in coming to Creativity on the Spectrum are encouraged to come out during regular museum hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) on Oct. 3-7 to check out the museum and receive a special gift.

Parents or other caregivers interested in learning more about the event or discussing special accommodations are encouraged to contact Liz Marg at 501-683-3592 or by email. Pre-registration is also available online at
