You’re Invited: Upcoming Events

Below is a selection of events that our office has funded for the month through our smART ventures grant program.  SmART ventures is a Seattle-based, flexible awards program that encourages innovative ideas, creates community impact, and provides new access for individuals and groups not served by our other programs. SmARTventures seeks to widen arts and cultural participation, particularly of diverse or underserved communities. We hope to see you at one of these great events!
