5:00 PM  Global Game On Game on! Join the San Diego Diplomacy Council for their Signature Event, co-hosted by the San Diego chapter of the International Game Developers Association, to learn how digital diplomacy and video games help close divisive gaps around the world. Citizen diplomats, grandparents, parents, and children are encouraged to attend to help promote peace and playing together!

Panelists include Lual Mayen, who fled war-torn South Sudan and spent 22 years in a refugee camp. Today, he creates video games that build peace. He will be joined by Kate Edwards, a specialist in content culturalization and 27-year veteran of the gaming industry who currently serves as executive director of the Global Game Jam, the world’s largest annual game creation event; and Dr. Constance Steinkuehler, an American professor of informatics at the University of California, Irvine, who currently researches the cognitive and social aspects of video games and gaming, and previously advised on policy matters about video games and learning in the Office of Science and Technology Policy at the White House Executive Office. The event will also feature two representatives from the U.S. Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, with welcome remarks from Assistant Secretary of State Marie Royce and moderation by Joshua Shen, a strategic designer for interactive media and games.

Then, attendees will witness the concept in action, as high school students participate in the video game Among Us that promotes global dialogue and collaboration.

Local guests will have the option to purchase dinner from IRC MAKE. The Project is a social enterprise catering and food company. It was created to provide low-literacy refugee women the opportunity to learn critical job skills and vocational English in a real, on-the-job setting. The event will also feature virtual door prizes, a live video game demonstration, and much more!

6:00 PM  Film: Maledetto Modigliani (Maverick Modigliani) “Artiste maudit,” scandalous genius and indisputable master of 20th-century art: “Maverick Modigliani” is a portrayal of Amedeo Modigliani, the famous Italian Jewish painter, that goes beyond the legendary.

Born in Livorno, Tuscany, Dedo or Modì, as he was known, lived a short, tormented life, narrated here from an original point ofview-that of his young common-law wife, Jeanne Hébuterne. Together with theRussian aspiring poetess Anna Achmatova and the English journalist BeatriceHastings, these were the women whose portraits he painted, and whose faces became the icons of his art.

The action of the film unwinds through museum halls, enriched by the works of the Albertina in Vienna and the splendid exhibition dedicated to the artist at Livorno’s City Museum, as well as the National Gallery of Artin Washington and the great museums and art collections in Paris.

With an introduction on the artist by Gloria Williams Sander, Curator at the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena.

Admission/Cost: FREE

7:00 PM  Film: Unveiled Rohina Malik is a rare kind of storyteller; one who invites you into her heart with open arms; one who proves over and over that mercy and love win over racism and hate. In her one-woman show, Unveiled, Rohina introduces us to the quiet power of Maryam, a Pakistani immigrant; Noor, A Moroccan American; Inez, an African American Islamic convert; Shabana, a South Asian rapper from England; and Layla, a Palestinian immigrant. While pairing luscious tea varieties with the personal stories of these five Muslim women in a post 9/11 world, Rohina opens a distinct window into the often misunderstood practice of Islam and wearing a hijab. While Rohina performed this piece to sold out houses across the United States and Canada, this intimate 50-minute play was recorded in her own Chicago apartment with costumes and music from the Middle East and South Asia. Pour yourself a cup of mint tea and join Rohina after the show for a live conversation about the play. Streaming at three specific times with a live talk back following each stream!

Admission/Cost: $15

Location: Online, with live talk-back.
