Learn more about festival:festival 2018:
This project is supported by a grant from 4Culture.
festival:festival is a presenting platform focusing on Seattle artists and practices that engage with intersectional structures and identities.
Our mission is to create vibrant spaces through creative frameworks of empowerment, healing, and intentionality with the goal of building a sustainable and accessible arts community.
festival:festival brings together and celebrates live music, performance, theatre, dance, visual arts, panel discussions, workshops, and other creative presentations removing the barriers that often separate the arts into genre-specific venues and programming.
Artists and cultural workers produce vital cultural services with reduced or even no financial support. Seattle, as one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, perpetuates an ever-growing endemic of economic inequality. The burden falls disproportionately on historically exploited communities. At festival:festival, we are dedicated to presenting, supporting, and investing in artists and cultural workers from these communities.
