Recess IRL

we created a space to take all the ideas, feelings, and experiences we've created online and put them back into the real world. it's easy to let our most creative thoughts remain day-dreams, abstract and distinct from real life. this space is all about making thoughts felt. and when we're not hosting curated events, we'll be open as simply a place to take a Recess; to pause, reflect, and wonder, before continuing on with your day..
