Join The Evergrey, Bo Zhang of Between Americans, and Kellie Newton and Heidi Petak of the Heart Perception Project in a chat about how — and why — people are connecting across ideological differences. We’ll give folks an opportunity to share a one-minute pitch of similar projects they’ve done or plan to do.
Seattle’s Cherry Blossom & Japanese Cultural Festival started in 1976, when Japan gave Washington 1,000 cherry trees. Play Go — the oldest board game in the world — learn Japanese calligraphy, watch performances, and more, all weekend long.
Organizers of SantaCon like to keep the party going in spring months, too. Dress like a bunny (ears are apparently the minimum requirement) and bounce from bar to bar at the seventh annual BunnyCon. Yes, this is really a thing.
(Note: This event is no longer being held this week.) Marcus Harrison Green, scholar in residence at Town Hall Seattle, leads a reading of a play he’s written that imagines people struggling with an addiction to whiteness. Intrigued? We’ll have more this week.
