Continue the celebration of Sally’s Night at the 21+ After Party!

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the late astronaut Sally Ride’s historic STS-7 mission and becoming the first American woman in space. We invite you to join us for this 21+ After Party to continue the celebration. 

Kick off your evening with a cocktail or two, then take part in a Creative Workshop, Bodies of Space hosted by Dana Karwas, Director of Yale's for Center Collaborative Arts and Media (CCAM) and professor at the Yale School of Architecture teaching courses on mechanized perception and design for the future of off-planet life, and Harshita Nedunuri, transdisciplinary designer and researcher and Ultra Space Research Fellow at CCAM. 

Bodies in Space Workshop 
How do we design for off-planet life? What is its potential for the body in the environment of weightlessness? How do we design for the lived experience of space? In the Bodies in Space Workshop, participants will work with a small wooden figure and craft a space architecture model for the figure to inhabit. The architecture can be creative and break traditional gravity-bound rules! 

At the end of the Workshop, participants will perform a 30-second movement routine of their figure interacting with the space architecture. No art or design experience is necessary!

Following the Workshop, the party continues with DJ Wax Witch and her femme-forward dance floor. Throughout the night, a variety of space experts will be available to chat. 

You'll spend the evening dancing, talking science and shining like Sally!
