To all Happen, Inc. friends and families.

At Happen, our theme is “Community is not just where you live, it’s how you live with other people”. With that in mind and out of an abundance of caution regarding the potential spread of the COVID-19 (Corona) virus, Happen, Inc. has decided to suspend our regular programming until such time that we can be assured the risk of any illness has passed. We will suspend our programming starting Thursday, March 12 and will continue to update our status on a week to week basis. Please be aware that this decision was arrived at through consultation with Happen’s Board of Directors and following the recommendations made by Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley in his declaration of a state of emergency for the city. Our decision to suspend programming is NOT the result of any known exposure of our staff or guests to any person who has been diagnosed with the virus. We hope that we are being overly cautious and believe in taking all necessary steps to help ensure public health. 

The effected programing is listed below:

  • Open Studio Sessions - Tues - Thurs 3:30pm - 7:30pm & Sat 10:00am - 5:00pm 

  • Happen's Space Talk

  • Happen’s Toy Lab - Sat & Sun 11:00am - 5:00pm

  • All Happen, Inc. Teen Programs

  • Happen’s Make It Activities - Sat 1:00pm - 5:00pm

  • Radial Ruckus Beyblades club at Happen’s Toy Lab - Sat - 9:30am - 10:30am

  • Chess Club at Happen’s Toy Lab - Sat - 10:30am - 11:15am

  • All Homework Club and tutoring programs

  • All uses of our facilities for meetings by outside groups and organizations 

While we are saddened that we won’t be able to see our many friends and families for the time being we think it is important to prioritize the health and well being of our staff, volunteers and guests above all else. 

However, we do have some good news, we are announcing Happen@Home, fun Happen learning activities for the whole family that you can download to do at home. Starting Thursday, March 12th, through our website and social media we will make Happen@Home projects available for download, complete with printable instructions and worksheets with lists of materials. Keep an eye on and for regularly updated projects and please follow and share this new Happen online programming with your friends and family. 

Tommy and the Happen staff will remain on the job to answer any questions you have about Happen@Home projects, feel free to email us

Thanks for your understanding during this time and rest assured that we will be back open with fun, and family friendly art lessons and activities as soon as we are able.
