Historic Seattle is excited to launch a new program series highlighting a handful of our 2020 and 2021 Preservation Awards Winners. This series runs from February 22 to March 12 and includes virtual and in-person events. We look forward to learning more about these incredible preservation projects from the project teams!
Wa Na Wari | 2020 Community Advocacy Award
Wa Na Wari is an active center for Black art and culture sited in a 5th-generation Black-owned home in Seattle’s Central District. By providing space and resources for Black artists to collaborate, exhibit their work, and network with other artists, collectors, and patrons, Wa Na Wari is advancing the community in the face of such challenges. To support their ongoing efforts in homeowner advocacy, Wa Na Wari also received a $3,000 Community Advocacy prize alongside this award.
We look forward to this in-person tour of Wa Na Wari and its current art exhibits facilitated by Founder & Land Steward Inye Wokoma and Founder & Curator Elisheba Johnson.
Cost: $5 members / $10 general public
Registration for this program is now closed. Please contact Taelore Rhoden (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any registration questions.
