Another “Awesome” Nerdnite — Feb. 27

The next Nerdnite will be our second event presented in conjunction with the Awesome Foundation.  We’re very excited to have two Awesome grantees coming to Nerdnite to tell us about their exciting and nerdy work.  This will all go down Monday Feb. 27, 2012, at 8pm at Middlesex Lounge.  As always, DJ Claude Money will provide nerd-appropriate tunes.

Talk 1:
Psychology, Magic, and Meaning: Stories from a Children’s Circus in Afghanistan.
by Zach Warren

Zach has been a juggling and magic teacher at the Afghan Children’s Educational Circus since 2005.  He holds a masters in divinity from Harvard, a masters in public policy from Georgetown, and is featured in the 2008 Guinness Book of Records for doing something strange — related to his work in Afghanistan.  He’s now a PhD student in psychology at Georgetown University.

Talk 2:
Tales from the Hammock
by Hansy Better Barraza

Hansy is an architect and an Associate Professor of Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design.  In 2011, She cofounded BR-A-CE: Building Research-Architecture-Community Exchange, a 501c non-profit dedicated to creating new community spaces.  When she is not working at Studio Luz Architects, the firm she cofounded with Anthony Piermarini, Hansy is playing soccer with her soccer teammates -the Thunderbolts.

Thanks to Kara Brickman of the AF who spearheaded this exciting collaboration.  If there was ever a time to “be there and be square,” this is it!
