Programs + Education

MoPOP seeks to inspire all of our audiences by providing unique and engaging resources and experiences.

Pop culture is an ongoing celebration of all of us. Through music, film, fashion, video games, or whatever sparks our interest, we identify and express ourselves through various forms of pop culture. It’s a platform that allows us to build communities; discover new artistic outlets; and gives us a means to thrive.

MoPOP offers a multitude of community and educational programs for audiences of all ages and pop culture interests. From the region’s premier youth band competition and the acclaimed Science Fiction + Fantasy Short Film Festival, to arts camps, mentorship programs, teacher development, and Seattle Mini Maker Faire which brings together our vibrant community of innovators—MoPOP is a place for discovery, inspiration, and learning.
