Comedy Hack Day DC @ DC Improv
Come see the awesome conclusion of an amazing comedy experiment! Comedy Hack Day DC is a weekend long "hackathon" bringing tech developers and comedians together to build hilarious apps and websites. Starting Friday night, "hackers" (coders, designers, engineers) and "hacks" (stand-up comedians, comedy writers, performers) toil away to create funny new tech products. Their hard work culminates in a live comedy showcase of the best of the best, complete with a panel of judges, prizes and more fun than that amazing tweet you thought of and then forgot. Come for the comedy, stay for the tech and leave because it's over. PLEASE NOTE: The kitchen will not be open for this show, but bar service will be available.

Creative Conversations: Active Ideas Art Talk @ General Assembly DC
Join Active Ideas Productions and General Assembly for a creative conversation on contemporary art. Meet with artist Annika Connor as she discusses AIP’s newest publication Point Suite Contemporary Art. The Point Suite Contemporary Art book highlights the work of 34 rising art stars and captures the conversation of the creative class in a new in-depth examination of what’s happening today in the emerging arts community. The evening’s discussion will start with a brief presentation, projecting some of the art featured in the book, and be followed by a fireside chat exploring what pressing issues are facing artists today. Topics to be addressed include: How can artists and entrepreneurs link together to engage the imagination both inside and out of the traditional art world? A DIY arts movement is sweeping across the art world, in what way can this be more effectively done? In a time when consumption of content has primarily moved to digital realm, why has a group of artists moved back to the traditional book format? We hope these talks will spark new ideas on how we can work together to engage the artistic imagination while shedding some light upon the issues surrounding art, publishing, and technology today. Signed copies of Point Suite will be available for the $35 at this event.
