Motus Meals are events that bring communities together to continue the critical conversations after the run of the show is over. Food brings people together and community is created when we share a meal together! Motus has produced videos of our first three projects – Rocks, Karma, Arrows, Do You Know Who I Am?, and Law Enforcement Leaders Read DREAMER Stories.
It’s simple to do a Motus Meal! We ask you to: order the video; invite your community to your home; share a meal; watch the video; have a self-guided or facilitated conversation; and encourage your friends to donate to Motus Theater arts-based conversation programs and to host their own Motus Meal.
Motus Theater hosts several Motus Meals throughout the year, so if you want to see how a Motus Meal works before you host one please join us!
