On the final day of the We Need to Talk exhibition, we invite you to take a moment to “paws” and reflect and heal your broken heart in this Yoga with Cats event hosted by Memphis Animals Services (MAS), Crosstown Arts, and Co-Motion Studio.
MAS will have approximately 10 adoptable cats at the Crosstown Arts gallery from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Adriene Holland, co-owner of Co-Motion Studio, will teach two yoga classes — one at 11 a.m. and another at noon — during which cats will be free-roaming and interacting with the yogis.
Join us to meet your neighbors and learn more about the progress of Crosstown Concourse! Get an overview of the construction timeline as well as information about future resources and opportunities. We are welcoming our neighbors, business owners and friends to join us for coffee, conversation, and questions.

Middle school students from the story booth after-school workshop will perform an original play about bullying. The students, who range in age from 11 to 14 years and attend Humes Preparatory Academy, devised the script themselves. In the play, the bullying incident is explained from the perspectives of parents, faculty, and kids.
