GERALD_1_Ben_WolfWelcome to this week’s Artist Ticket Picks! The Artist Ticket program gives our customers a way to donate to causes that we care about.

If you’re an event producer, you can allow your ticket buyers to purchase limited-edition tickets printed with original artwork in your event settings. The ticket buyer will pay a small, additional charge of $0.25 and receive a limited edition, collectible ticket imprinted with original artwork. The current charity of our choosing will receive 100% of the additional charge. Physical tickets must be enabled on the event.

If you’re a ticket buyer, you can check to see if the limited edition ticket is available to you at the beginning of the ticket checkout process or by visiting the Artist Ticket page. You receive a small piece of collectible art and support a valuable cause just by checking the box in the Artist Ticket widget when you’re purchasing your tickets!

See a full list of events carrying the tickets on the Artist Ticket page, as well as find out more about the beneficiary for the current run of Artist Tickets.

Saturday, November 16 I Haku InoaSeattle, Washington   Part of Northwest Film Forum’s Indigenous Showcase, this screening of Christen Hepuakoa Marquez’s 2013 film Haku Inoa is co-presented with Longhouse Media. This is the Seattle premiere of this film and the director will be in attendance. There will also be a reception at 5:30pm with eats from Marination Station.

Haku Inoa follows a young, multi-racial Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) woman, filmmaker Christen Hepuakoa Marquez, as she sets out to discover the meaning of her incredibly lengthy Hawaiian name from her estranged mother (whose diagnosis as schizophrenic in the 80s caused their family separation). Christen discovers not only her self within the name, but gains a whole new perspective on the idea of sanity and how cultural differences can sometimes muddle its definition.
