Newseum napkinWhat:

On one day, Learning Life, a new and unusual educational non-profit, will be carrying out a creative series of events in the streets of Washington D.C.  Learning Life will be performing street theater and distributing 10,000 corresponding interactive napkins (see adjoining image of the napkin) in restaurants at several high-traffic pedestrian locations in D.C. in order to promote public education about American political history, and particularly the presidency of John F. Kennedy in light of the 50th anniversary of his assassination this year.

This unusual project is a partnership between Learning Life and The Newseum. It is the first such initiative Learning Life is carrying out in the D.C. metro area, representing a new approach to public education, with more to come in 2014.

When & Where:
