Seattle arts scene & collaborations

Monday, April 5th, 2010

I was very happy to read that Seattle was ranked #5 on the Creativity Index, but surprised we didn’t have a listing here yet! I’m wondering if the Creativity Index has been updated since the booked was published, as I’m guessing we’ve moved up a notch or two.

The creativity coming out of Seattle right now is really amazing. We’re focusing a lot on collaborative arts events with musicians, dancers, live painters, slam poets, and more. Fremont Abbey Arts Center is one place those sorts of events have been nurtured but there are many other venues and nonprofits supporting the ‘multi-arts experience’. Youth Speaks, Seattle Poetry Slam, Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, not to mention lots of fun gallery and art spaces in Georgetown and Beacon Hill. Come visit!
