For Today

SDOT Presents: Blueprints for a New Road Order
 
Transportation changes in Seattle are going to be monumental, without a doubt. The Seattle Department of Transportation hosts a lecture moderated by KUOW’s Ross Reynolds and featuring former NYC Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan.

Sadik-Khan is kind of a big deal in the public transportation world, and will offer insight on potential future transportation options in Seattle. So utilize the opportunity to access her wisdom, and ask any of your burning traffic and light rail questions. 
 
Blueprints for a New Road Order with Janette Sadik-Khan, Wed, Apr 15, 6pm, Great Hall, 1119 Eighth Ave, Free with registration 

For Thursday

Hive Mind Honey Panel
 
Ever wonder how independent artists accumulate the money, time, space, and people needed to keep their projects in motion? Thursday's "Honey" lecture discusses the ways in which Seattle's self-made creatives are making it happen.

This lecture is a part of Hive Mind, a clever bee-themed events series (Honey, Hive, Cross-Pollination, and Buzz are all on the calendar) that hopes to bring together the broader artistic community in Seattle. It's all put on by nonprofit arts organization Shunpike, which is a support network for Washington state’s independent arts groups. Snag a ticket and see what makes our arts ecosystem tick.

Honey: Attracting Resources and Support, Thu, Apr 16, 6pm, Impact Hub Seattle, 220 Second Ave S, $10

Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic
 
The HPV vaccine prevents several forms of cancer, including one that kills 6,000 people in the U.S. and 250,000 people worldwide each year—but why do vaccination rates continue to remain low? An estimated 79 million Americans are infected with HPV, and less than half of adolescent girls and only 13 percent of adolescent boys in Washington state have received preventive vaccines. 

Join a number of organizations including Seattle King County Public Health for a free (with registration) screening of Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic to learn about the impact of the disease and how public health experts are addressing it. 

'Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic' Screening, Fri, Apr 24, 6pm, Seattle Children's Hospital Wright Auditorium, 4800 Sand Point Way NE, Free with registration
