With only a few days remaining in the year, here’s a short smattering of upcoming events around Seattle and the region to help fill up your calendar. There’s no particular theme, so enjoy 🙂
December 27th, 7pm: Science in the City Lecture: “Societal Benefits of Gaming”
Join Mark Chen, an Indie Game Designer and Scholar, in a discussion about gaming literacy and its implications for our every day lives. Mark will talk about how playing games helps with skill development and can make us better learners and citizen. $5, Pacific Science Center’s PACCAR Theater. More info and tickets here.
Closing January 2nd: MoPOP: “World of Wearable Art“
Experience a selection of stunning garments from New Zealand’s largest arts show, currently on display at MoPOP through January 2nd. If you haven’t seen this exhibit before, you’ll quickly understand why this exhibit is called “wearable art” and not simply a fashion or garment show. The pieces are impressively original, as the show itself imposes only loose rules that allow the designer’s imagination to shine. Highly recommended. Included in MoPOP admission, which is $25 for adults. More info and tickets here.
