Gather: An Urban Retreat
Evanston’s storefront play space, Gather, founded by Kristin Blakeman and Karyn Mewett, caught our eye for its attention to not only providing activities for kids that nurture and cultivate their creative acumen, but also helping parents engage in activities as a bonding activity. In addition, the space offers educational courses for new mothers on a range of topics, from breastfeeding to a range of courses on pediatric health, taught by instructors from Northwestern faculty.
