    • Solano Avenue and Albany

    Beginning June 7, 2019, Solano Avenue and the surrounding area will host a new reality. If you are inquisitive and attuned to your environment, you will uncover a call to adventure. Answering the call will spark a series of events, interactions, and quests across the physical and digital landscapes that are unlike anything else in the East Bay.

    This is your story. YOU are the protagonist.

    The Chamber is excited to support this new type of game. The game is free, and free enrollment runs from June 6 through June 20th. The game then continues.

    Juneteenth is the oldest celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Though President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, declaring “all persons held as slaves” free, slavery continued in Texas. It wasn’t until June 19, 1865 that the last known slaves were emancipated, thus the ending of slavery is celebrated annually on this date.

    • 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
    • Albany Community Center, 1249 Marin Avenue Albany, California 94706

    Based on his recently released, expanded edition of the award-winning Perception and Deception: A Mind-Opening Journey Across Cultures, Joe Lurie, Executive Director Emeritus, UC Berkeley International House, will present a spirited and insightful exploration of cross-cultural miscommunications in an increasingly globalized, polarizing world. With YouTube, tweets, refugees and fake news rapidly crossing cultures without context, Lurie shares a timely, intriguing and consequential array of intercultural encounters gone wrong because of cultural misperceptions across the globe, in the worlds of migration, religion, language, commerce and technology. David Lennon, former managing editor of the Financial Times, called Lurie's book “brilliant!” According to Lennon, the book offers: “Terrific and timely insights and tools for understanding culture clashes in a hyper-connecting world.” Book signing at the conclusion of the presentation.
