Description

Blue Zones Project Fort Worth and Amphibian Stage theatre company host a celebration for the recently unveiled Neighborhood Leap art walk on Fort Worth’s Near Southside. Leap Hour will showcase the app-based augmented reality walking trail exhibit that stretches along a 0.6-mile walking path in the South Main Village. Visitors can experience an array of visual art, music, movement, and storytelling; mingle with local artists; and enjoy the Near Southside experience while they get in their daily steps.

Download the free Neighborhood Leap app from your phone’s app store—then immerse yourself in the multi-sensory trail, which takes about 30 minutes and 1,750 steps to complete.

Leap Hour will take place Wednesday, Aug. 10. The free event is come and go, and guests are invited to drop in at any time. Leap Hour attendees can join local artists as they view Neighborhood Leap, or explore the exhibit on their own. The event will include appetizers, refreshments, popsicles, music, Blue Zones Project goodie bags, and opportunities to win door prizes.

The community celebration will bring attention to the ongoing Neighborhood Leap exhibit, which showcases the work of Texas-based artists. The event also offers a way for people to move naturally, downshift, and build stronger social bonds—all key principles for better well-being—while highlighting other local artists and the role they play in bettering our community and promoting creativity and connections.
