Description

Sensory-Friendly Family Event with Walkaround Julia from "Sesame Street"

WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies are pleased to bring walkaround Julia, Sesame Street’s first muppet on the autism spectrum, to the Golisano Autism Center.

As part of WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies' Dialogue on Disability initiative, designed to stimulate community dialogue about the perspectives and abilities of people with physical and intellectual disabilities, the two organizations are pleased to bring Julia to the Golisano Autism Center for a sunny day of fun for kids of all abilities on Saturday, January 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be hands-on activities and crafts, a meet and greet with walkaround Julia, and a special screening of Julia segments.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is requested.

Dialogue on Disability is a partnership between WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies - in conjunction with the Herman and Margaret Schwartz Community Series. Dialogue on Disability is supported by the Fred L. Emerson Foundation with additional support from The Golisano Foundation.

FAQs

Will there be a line to meet walkaround Julia?
Most likely yes. We will do our best to move through the line quickly, with respect to the families waiting. There will also be another photo area where families can take photos with Sesame Street cardboard standees.

Why does Julia have to take breaks?
Because there is an actor inside of the costume, we must follow the schedule provided to us by Sesame Workshop, to make sure the actor is safe and hydrated. Julia will take breaks at the half-hour mark of each hour (i.e. 10:30, 11:30, 12:30, and 1:30).

What are my parking options for the event?
Parking is availale on the Golisano Autism Center campus.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
If you have any questions about the event, please contact Cara Rager at crager@wxxi.org

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
We will be printing out the list of attendees, so if you do not have your ticket, we'll have the list of names.
