Playground Games: A Live Game Show!
December 10, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| Free, RSVP Required
UA’s Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry (CCI) and the Institute of the Environment (IE) are teaming up to play matchmaker by hosting a live game show-like event with UA Faculty on the roof of Downtown’s Playground Bar & Lounge. Think speed-dating meets Shark Tank, with an academic spin!
The Faculty contestants are divided into interdisciplinary teams that will speed-network, plan a project and pitch their ideas to a panel of three judges and the audience. Two winning teams will have their projects funded before the fast-paced night is over!
Drawing on IE’s Art and Environment initiative and CCI’s collaborative and interdisciplinary endeavors, the night will bring together faculty who didn’t necessarily know each other beforehand. The groups will be formed, randomly, on the spot. When you get brilliant people together on a roof, sparks can fly!
The judges will evaluate the project pitches and you – the audience – will help make the final decision on which teams are funded. Audience participation space is limited, so RSVP here today!
The rooftop of Playground Bar & Lounge has a beautiful backdrop of Downtown Tucson, and you can expect a cozy, warm, and intimate atmosphere. Appetizers will be provided and drinks will be available for purchase.
Come Out & Play! RSVP here today!
