InterUrban: Changing Seattle

Join Historic Seattle on Tuesday, November 17, 2015, at 7 pm for a lively conversation on the topic of Changing Seattle. This event, part of our InterUrban Series, will bring together placemakers and thinkers from around the city to explore the intersection of place, community, and change.

Speakers will tackle questions about how our city is changing, what they are doing to change it, and how place plays into the equation with a 5-minute lightning-style timed slideshow. Come for new perspectives on changing neighborhoods and longstanding challenges; stay for snacks, drinks, and conversation afterwards.

Confirmed speakers include:

+ Tomilola Adewale, Ujima Pictures
+ Florangela Davila, Forterra
+ Zac Davis, Photographer
+ Roger Fernandes, Native American Artist and Storyteller
+ Karl Hackett, Vision Hillman City and Jacob Willard Home
+ Grace Kim, Schemata Workshop
+ Ethan Phelps-Goodman, Seattle in Progress
+ Michael Sullivan, Artifacts Consulting
+ Cynthia Updegrave, Botanist and Historical Ecologist
+ Maiko Winkler-Chin, Seattle Chinatown International District Preservation and Development Authority (SCIDpda)

This event will be held at Southside Commons in Columbia City. Southside Commons is owned and operated by the Alliance for a Just Society, and is housed in the former Columbia Baptist Church, built in 1907 and substantially renovated in the 1930s. Event co-sponsors include Spinnaker Bay Brewing and Columbia City Bakery.
