Oddly enough I was contacted by someone at EMPAC trying to get the word out about a kid friendly event happening this Saturday, and I'm happy to share this opportunity to check out the building (amazing architecture) and also to expose your unsophisticated progeny to the high end world of cutting edge media research...or something like that.
Here is a description of the event from their website:
A dynamic program just for kids! This specially curated selection of short videos can be enjoyed by youngsters and parents alike. onedotzero programs explore new forms and hybrids of moving image across motion graphics, short film, animation, music videos, and more.
Suggested ages - 3-11.
Saturday October 29, 11:00 AM
However, in the case that you can't make it, may I suggest a viewing of The Jetsons. Also very futuristic.
