Images Of Protest And Politics says
In Seattle, and especially in an election year, we all do our fair share of documenting protests and politics. From the upcoming May Day half-marathon to Black Lives Matter demonstrations, and back to Occupy and WTO, we’ve seen some incredible things happen on the streets. We’re also in the midst of a wild ride of an election season. Who’s really controlling whom, though?

Let’s get together, share some work and talk with people smarter than we are on the impact of our imagery.

Submit two or three of your favorite protest or political images from your archive and I’ll edit them into a collective gallery for discussion. We’re getting together a panel to analyze our work for message, power, ethics, manipulation and other forces at play. It’s going to be exciting to include some interdisciplinary voices we don’t always get to hear from.

We’re planning to order pizza for the event, so come hungry and be sure to RSVP so we can get enough for everyone. Message Bettina if you have dietary requests.

Doors will open at 6:00 PM, pizza will be served at 6:30 PM and we’ll start the presentation at 7:00 PM. Message me, Bettina, with questions, and send your images to bhansen.photo@gmail.com by Friday April 29th. (I’ll allow images from this year’s May Day to sneak in day of, if you send them to me)

Getting there:

Machine House Brewery is at 5840 Airport Way South, in the big brick complex of the Old Rainier Brewery. (Not the one with the Rainier R on it - south from that, along the main drag in Georgetown).

The front door to the brewery is tucked off the street and sometimes people have a hard time finding it. If you look for the tall brick smokestack by the new Fran's Chocolates building, you'll see some stained glass arches and you'll find it.

Parking: there is tons of parking back there. However, there is a large antiques sale going on this week. It should be over by the time we start, but, **if there is a lot attendant there - just tell them you are attending an event at Machine House Brewery**

If you're taking public transit, the 124 and the 106 buses drop off right in front of the brewery. If taking an Uber or the like, have them navigate you to Fonda La Catrina restaurant 5905 Airport Way S. It is across the street from the alley where the main entrance is.
