If you're in New York this week, on Tuesday night at 7 p.m., ASIFA East and the School of Visual Arts will be hosting a panel discussion on 'Women in Stop Motion Animation.'

From the ASIFA East Facebook event:

"ASIFA-East presents a panel discussion with 6 innovative artists in the field of stop motion. Our guests include

The panel will be moderated by Careese Singh (CBS College Sports Network) and has been organized by Robert Lyons (Media Arts Prof. at Univ. of Arts, PA).
