Kid Visit to EMPAC

Just the other day I was thinking about EMPAC and how I have yet to visit. Somehow experimental media has fallen at the bottom of my list of things to do with the kids while library story times are consistently in the top five.

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.

Studio 2
» Saturday, October 29 kids free with purchase of adult ticket ($6)
Kid-friendly snacks and juices will be available at Evelyn's CafĂ© from 10:30 AM–3 PM.
We encourage you to purchase tickets directly from the box office. Stop by Monday–Friday 9 AM–6 PM, two hours prior to any performance.

However, in the case that you can't make it, may I suggest a viewing of The Jetsons. Also very futuristic.
