Event Details

Celebrate the Opening Ceremonies of the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games!

Join us for a gathering to watch the Paralympic Winter Games Opening Ceremonies at PNCA! See the world’s top athletes sporting state-of-the-art innovations in adaptive design in their ultimate capacity in this globally uniting event.

The Paralympic Games will feature 670 athletes, which reflects a 24 percent increase on the total athletes that competed 2014 and a 44 per cent increase in the number of female athletes. Athletes will compete in 80 medal events across six sports: alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, ice hockey, snowboard and wheelchair curling. We think that’s a great reason to celebrate!

We will join together to watch this showcase of athleticism, adaptive design, and inspiration the evening of March 9th at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. Join us for an evening with adaptive device users and creators, athletes, designers, and sports enthusiasts.

Light refreshments will be served.

Bespoke Bodies: The Design & Craft of Prosthetics is a major exhibition and education program by Design Museum Foundation, on view at the Pacific Northwest College of Art from February 15 – May 9, 2018. From sculpting ocular prosthetics to crowdsourcing affordable 3D printed hands, this exhibition surveys past, present, and future of prosthetic design on a global scale. Visitors will explore evolution and design process behind a range of prostheses through visual stories, historical surveys, videos, and interactive models. Over 35+ case studies — spanning DIY-inventions from kids to mind-controlled bionic limbs — tell the stories behind the patients, clinicians, designers, and artists changing how we think about the impact of design, and ultimately, the future of our mobility.

Visit our exhibition website for the full list of programming and events related to this exhibition!
