This event is free and open to the public. Come and learn about our organization and meet Wes Hurley. Cash bar is available.

Born and raised in the former Soviet Union, Wes Hurley is a Seattle-based filmmaker and writer. Hurley directed and produced two features - documentary "Waxie Moon" and experimental pop art comedy "Fallen Jewel". He also created the critically acclaimed "Capitol Hill" series that started out as a web show on Huffington Post and is now on TV in several countries. "Capitol Hill" season 2 was produced in collaboration with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center's Seattle HIV Trials Unit as a means to promote their AMP vaccine study among gay men and trans individuals. Hurley's many short films include an ongoing anthology "Dark Woods" - a series of Tom of Finland inspired graphic recreations of classical fairytales. Hurley is currently finishing up "Potato Dreams" - a multimedia project based on his experiences growing up gay in Russia. "Potato Dreams" will include a documentary short and an immersive VR piece, both produced by Mel Eslyn, Lacey Leavitt and Mischa Jakupcak. Hurley is a recipient of Seattle Mayor's Art Grant, the Advocate Magazine's Person to Watch and City Arts Magazine's Artist of the Year.
