About Hey Baby Jamboree
Hey Baby Jamboree is an all-day celebration of families organized by Hey Baby Feminist Parenting Group. Parents, caretakers, and children are invited to participate in activities for all ages that are centered on creativity and community. This event is intended to provide families with opportunities to expand their collective networks of support while engaging in activities that nurture the mind, body, and spirit. 

Mountain House will facilitate two activities as part of this day-long jamboree:

  1. Pop-up Community (free) Thrift
    Take what you need, share what you have! Folks are invited to look through gently used baby and kid clothes + accessories and pick out as many items you may need and drop off children’s clothing items you want to share with others. There is NO requirement to donate in order to select items. 

    The Mountain House (free) Community Thrift is a resource for all.
     

  2. Where I Live: Onomatopoetic Architecture of Children’s Home­-place

    A Mountain House representative will be walking around the Armory with a recorder and mic recording children's onomatopoetic interpretations of the sounds they associate/experience as part of their home­-space/place. We will capture children's verbal interpretations of things like the toilet flushing, air conditioner whirring, the sounds of horns honking outside, the echo of a hallway or the sounds of an elevator, birds nearby, etc. These recordings will be preserved and archived as part of an ongoing investigation into home-­place­-experiences — particularly as one in which the children have an opportunity to generate their own representation of the spaces/places in which they experience home.
