Salish Sea Anti-Space Symposium (SSASS) 2019


Pipsqueak Gallery Central District
July 19–21


  Save Event

The anarchist gallery is "celebrating" the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing in its own special way: by drawing attention to the Seattle juxtaposition of "constantly-increasing numbers of unhoused people" and "a half-dozen delusional billionaires groping for the stars." This multidisciplinary party will express their anti-space-exploration platform through talks (the Black Panther Party's Elmer Dixon, UW climate scientist and artist Judy Twedt, the Tulalip Tribe's Natural Resources and Treaty Rights Commissioner Terry Williams, and others), a children's "lively musical reinterpretation of the Apollo 11 moon landing," punk music by Pigeon, comedy by Emmett Montgomery, a poster show, and more. Whether or not you agree with their position, this should be a fascinating evening full of local talent and intellect.
