September 9 - Sunday Assembly - WeHo

Due to an unforeseen power outage at the 11:11 Theatre, we will be holding the upcoming Assembly 2 miles down the street at Backstage Theatre at The Hudson Theatres, 6539 Santa Monica Blvd (cross street Vine).

Our featured speaker, memory researcher and veteran SALA guest Dr. Craig Stark, will talk about new research into how Virtual Reality and video games can enhance cognitive function and memory and what this tells us about the human brain. 

Comic Rachele Friedland tells it like it is. Steve Friedman is Trying His Best. With Music from Ground Control! Fletcher Crossman and Amy Boyle host!

Join us pre-Assembly for coffee, bagels or muffins in the Lobby Cafe! Find your seat in the theatre around 11, and our Assembly begins at 11:30. If you're still hungry for brunch or company, after the Assembly, come on over to the Eat This cafe.

Free street parking or valet will be available closer to 11. As always, SALA is free to attend, and childcare is complimentary. Donations gratefully accepted.

Sunday Assembly is a volunteer-driven non-profit entirely funded by attendee donations. If you'd like to see SALA continue to develop positive secular community, please consider becoming a sustaining member:



We could always use more volunteer helpers, starting at 9:30am to set up signs, fold programs, greet attendees, and load out after the event, let us know if you can be on the team this month!

Want to sing your heart out from the other side of the stage? The Wonder-more Warblers is a for-fun choir that meets at 10:30am on the day-of to run through the songs. Sometimes we even have a rehearsal with the band before the day! Sign up here to learn more. 

There's a TON that goes into driving a thriving community--planning committees, event hosts, blog writers, social media, video editors and maybe something you're into that we haven't even thought of yet. If you'd like to be a part of the (figurative) magic of managing a science-based community, let us know!
