Knockdown Center: spring 2019 exhibition opening reception (FREE?, 1800-2100)
Like many of the popular event spaces in Bushwick (think Elsewhere Space, Lot 45, and House of Yes), Knockdown Center tries to position itself as a focal point of artistic expression and community beyond a simple show destination. One way they do this is by housing rotating collections of art from local artists and beyond.
Art exhibitions / openings are always hit or miss for me, but this could be a good excuse to go out to Bushwick early then hop around to local digs like The Rookery or Clabrije’s.
Location: Knockdown Center, Bushwick

HackItTogether women’s hackathon ($20, 0830-2030)
HackItTogether is running an all-women’s hackathon this sunday.

They’re a great way to meet up with other people trying to learn / build and you usually get some food out of it. You also help support gender equality in tech so that’s a plus.
