Social Event

The NAACL 2022 Social Event will be held on Tuesday, July 12 from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm at the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP). Housed in a building designed by architect Frank Gehry, this museum features rotating exhibits dedicated to all things pop culture, including film, music, comic books, and more. MoPOP’s permanent collection features more than 80,000 objects. While we add objects to this online catalog over the coming years until the entire collection is accessible digitally,

MoPOP curators have selected iconic objects from across genres and time periods, in order to highlight the breadth of MoPOP’s permanent collection. Visit here to learn more about MoPOP.

The Museum of Pop Culture (formerly EMP Museum) is located at 325 5th Avenue N at Seattle Center.

One entrance ticket will be included with your in-person registration. Please note that we need to plan ahead so it is important to let us know on the registration form whether or not you plan to attend the social event.
