Join Historic Seattle 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. We hope to see you there!

+ Florangela Davila, Forterra
+ Tomilola Adewale, Ujima Pictures
+ Roger Fernandes, Native American Artist and Storyteller
+ Karl Hackett, Vision Hillman City and Jacob Willard Home
+ Grace Kim, Schemata Workshop
