Family Writing Workshop
In partnership with Writers in the Schools, two family writing workshops will focus on selections from the Children's Film Festival Seattle 2013 and Universe is Flux: The Art of Tawara Yūsaku. Expert poets and librettists will guide visitors’ literary imaginations, receiving inspiration from the creativity of Chinese culture, the beauty of the Bangladeshi countryside, and the calmness of contemporary Japanese Zen Buddhist painting.
Workshop fee included in Children's Film Festival Seattle 2013 admission (Asia Society members and children under 8 $5; nonmembers $8). Show your film festival ticket stub upon arrival.
