STORYTELLING: Two Singaporean filmmakers—Tay and Val—have been traveling the world on a mission to collect people's stories and then share them. Their first storytelling session in Los Angeles is at 1 pm today at Showbiz Software Store and Cafe on 500 S. Sepulveda Blvd. For more information about the duo, check out their website or visit the Facebook page for the event.

CONTEMPLATE: Educator Mitra Manesh will lead a 75-minute mindful art-viewing experience of the art at the Hammer museum today through a meditation that is meant to "deepen the art exploration experience by focusing on the suspension of judgment and creating an opportunity for art, artist and self to be considered anew." The program is free and takes place at 1pm. For more information, visit the Hammer museum's website.
