We create vibrant spaces through creative frameworks.
festival:festival is a presenting platform focusing on Seattle artists and practices that engage with intersectional structures and identities.
Our vision 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 States¹, 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.
