What happens when a progressive architecture firm has space and asks, "What's possible with this space?" That's exactly what Olson Kundig did with their "Storefront" space in Pioneer Square. The Reel Grrls accepted this challenge and created a giant snow globe, filmed some work, and culminated their time there with a karaoke party. Here are some of my favorite pictures from that event. The Reel Grrls is an organization that teaches young people (primarily young women) how to be well-rounded media professionals, training them in various aspects of professionalism, technical skills, creativity, and fun. I definitely encourage you to check out their program as well as consider them if you have any video needs. They do good work!

Last night, BGI Net Impact (@bginetimpact) hosted a great event featuring guests Dawn Danby (@altissima) and Gifford Pinchot III (@giffordpinchot) on the topic of intrapreneurship. Taking place at the new Center for Impact and Innovation Center in Pioneer Square Gifford and Dawn shared stories of individuals making positive change happen within large organizations.
This was the first time that Dawn and Gifford have presented simultaneously. The admiration and respect the two have for each other was palpable. It was beautiful to see mentor and student be able to share time and space. They were each so proud to be in the other's company.
Dawn, a BGI alum has been named by Fast Company as one of the most influential business women in the nation. She now works for Autodesk and works to continuously and seamlessly weave sustainable principles within the product and organizations. One of her most notable innovations, accounting for waste, carbon footprint, and other metrics into the design software has changed the fundamentals of industrial design.
After the presentations, a BGI Dean, John Gardner announced Gifford's 70th birthday, and the networking time turned into a birthday celebration.
