The event will be held at the restaurant Iguana, 40 West 54th Street (between 8th Avenue and Broadway), and is open to women and men who are interested in learning more about WIA and joining the organization. The event will be attended by WIA’s Co-presidents Kristy Scanlan and Marge Dean, as well as Chair of Chapter Support Jinko Gotoh.

The event will feature discussions about WIA’s vision to foster an environment in which which women share fully in the creation, production and rewards of animation, resulting in richer and more diverse entertainment and media that move our culture forward. They will also discuss the organizations goal to engage WIA members through a variety of online and offline events, small collegial gatherings and large networking events in an effort to create new opportunities of connection and inspiration; and to inspire women to excel in the animation industry by encouraging artistic excellence through WIA awards and by educating its members about technology advances and career growth in continuing education classes.

The first 100 attendees to arrive will receive a copy of the Dr. Seuss DVD Cat in the Hat – Hurray It’s Valentine’s Day, courtesy of NCircle Entertainment. A free digital subscription to Animation Magazine will be available to everyone who attends the party!
