Living with Tech: Atari Women & Beyond

May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$15 – $35

Join Living Computer for our new after-hours speaker series, Living with Tech. This month, we’re partnering with Atari Women for a lecture and interactive pop-up installation.

Atari Women—an international research project organized by the University of Copenhagen and the Human Centered Design & Engineering department at the University of Washington—aims to reinterpret women’s contributions to Atari game history and empower the next generation of student technologists. Professor and Fulbright Scholar Pernille Bjørn will provide a brief lecture about Atari Women, followed by a one-night-only gallery featuring interactive works created by UW engineering students. Hear all about how this organization is working with students to empower a new generation of women in technology.
