Event Programs

Below is a list of all the programming that will be happening during the Solar Punk Festival.  We'll be having and hosting multiple activities throughout the day.  We invite you to come out to stay for the whole day or just come out to see a certain section like the Green Jobs Expo which is happening from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Event Programs

At The Pop up Farmer's Market community members will be able to walk through and visit booths housing tech, local green businesses and food. 

At The Green Jobs expo we will be highlighting local green businesses in the solar energy, green construction, rainwater harvesting industries, and other Sustainability industries.  These business owners will be available to speak directly with the community members on what green business is and what it's like to be BIPOC (Black, Indigenous People of Color) in these industries.  These Green entrepreneurs will also share upcoming employment opportunities in which community members can interview on-site. 

Burien has a higher rate of unemployment, as compared to the national average. The purpose of this Job Fair event is to create a conducive environment, where multiple recruiters, hiring managers, and employers, can meet with potential employees, in one convenient neutral venue. The Job Fair will enable Green Companies to save time and effort on recruiting, by participating in this event. This will be achieved by giving Job Seekers the opportunity to attend interviews with well-known companies at a Job Fair.

Music Festival: occurs after the Green Jobs Expo. This centers around the stage where some spoken word artists, a band and some other media attractions will entertain guests. 

We will be showcasing cool and emerging technologies and Arts at the event. Tech Like Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. 

A Pixar animation film where WALL-E, a hopeful trash robot left collecting and compacting trash long after Earth has been deemed uninhabitable, nurtures a plant back to life. A futuristic robot named EVE, which WALL-E falls in love with, senses the plant, and he is willing to follow her across the galaxy. The film is especially notable for extended portions of the story which use little to no dialogue to advance the storytelling, as well as its ultimately hopeful outlook in the face of the apocalypse.
