the mixer: space affordability

Join us at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center on 7/31 for our third in a series of community discussions to help shape the City’s vision for the future of our creative economy.  The spaces where artists and creatives practice, create, and present their work are essential to a healthy creative ecosystem. Yet as Seattle continues to grow, space keeps getting more expensive. How might the creative community meet the need for space in this intense real estate market?

Join us to learn about some of the investment models that cultural organizations, private businesses, and arts advocates are using to ensure that creativity still has a place here.

At this month’s Mixer Tim Lennon, Executive Director of LANGSTON, will lead a discussion with panelists Cassie Chinn (Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience), David Bestock (Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association), and Julie-C (Artist Coalition for Equitable Development).

About the Speakers

Afterwards, attendees will break out into small groups for more networking and to give feedback about how the city can help creatives meet their needs for space in our rapidly growing city.

This event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome. Refreshments will be provided, and alcohol will be available for purchase for guests 21+. For ADA accommodations or accessibility information, contact

All members of Seattle’s creative community are welcome at this conversation: visual artists, musicians, music and film industry professionals, teaching artists – whatever role you play in our local creative scene, we want to hear from you!
