NYC Bucket List - 29Rooms
As soon as we heard 29Rooms was headed back to our home base of New York City, we bought our tickets and marked our calendars. It was our first time attending this fan-favorite pop-up exhibit and it did not disappoint! We now understand why it has such a huge following.
For those of you who haven't heard of this annual event by Refinery29, 29Rooms is described by Piera Gelardi, co-founder of Refinery29, as an "immersive cultural festival" meant to allow visitors to stop and reflect on the world around them, current societal trends, and personal growth.
Read on for some of our favorite moments from 29Rooms!
Our first stop was in "A Conversation With You Inner Child." Each visitor is given a pink post-it note and asked to write a piece of advice to their past self. Reading through a sea of pink post-its, the clear theme was that we all need to be more gentle and loving to ourselves and others. We are all the same on the inside!
Continuing with the theme of being kind to ourselves and others, we visited "Love Letter To The World." The letter was started by performance artist Cocovan, but so many people asked if they could contribute to it that she turned it into a collaborative exhibit! 115 countries have joined together so far to create this inspiring letter to the world!
There were too many other awesome rooms for us to list them all, but we left feeling inspired and empowered! The experience was reflective, immersive, and empowering and we can't wait to see what they have planned for 2019!
