For Today

Changing the Climate of Climate Change

SHell No! participants will speak about the importance of women of color in Pacific Northwest climate-change activism—calling for a  change in the climate of the climate change movement.

Join Sarra Tekola (who also organized June's protest on UW's Greek Row), Zarna Joshi, Afrin Sopariwala, and Yin Yu Wednesday evening for some insight from Seattle's leading change makers. 

Women of Color Speak Out: Changing The Climate of Climate Change, Wed, July 29, 7pm, Town Hall Seattle, 1119 Eighth Ave, $8 

For Thursday

Thinking Currents: An Exhibition and Curatorial Platform

Seattle Art Fair presents Thinking Currents, an exhibition that "activates Seattle’s geo-economic position in the Pacific Northwest," with commentary on migration, the environment, identity, technology, nation building, and conflict.

That's a lot, but I'd boil it down to an artistic evaluation take on globalization. 

Thinking Currents: An Exhibition and Curatorial Platform, Thurs, July 30, CenturyLink Field Event Center, 800 Occidental Ave S, $20

Advance Notice for August 8
