Discovery Green virtual events

Discovery Green virtual events
Update: We have plenty of online programming to share with you that was filmed before the Stay Home, Work Safe order was implemented.

Part of the Discovery Green Conservancy’s mission is to be a window to the diversity of arts and traditions that make Houston great. As our community struggles through this difficult time let’s take comfort in our culture wherever we can.

Please continue to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Youtube. We will be sharing pre-recorded performances, arts and crafts projects, writing prompts and more.

When this is over we’ll be here with the fun, free events that provide opportunities for health, culture and moments of magic. We’d love to hear from you. We miss you, Houston.

Please join us in creating this virtual community together and tag your friends! The community is stronger when everyone participates!

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Youtube.
