Let’s make some noise Seattle! Seattle’s cultural community in
association with the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture (City of Seattle) encourages residents to participate in a civic wide celebration of people on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic response.
Here’s a Twitter Moment, collecting some of the noise you all made on March 26, 2020.
Starting 8 p.m. sharp Thursday evening, we’re asking Seattleites to join a movement that began in European countries, opening our windows, standing on our balconies, from our front yards, backyards and or anywhere you can to make a joyful noise letting the healthcare and front line workers know how much we appreciate them. People can clap their hands, raise their voices, bang some pots and pans to show solidarity and let the front line know how much they are appreciated.
The message is simple #MakeAJoyfulNoise asks us to:
- Applaud our healthcare workers
- Celebrate those on the front lines
- Make a joyful noise at 8 p.m. any night you choose for as long as you want
We are doing this to celebrate the front lines, which include grocery store workers, supply chain specialists, janitors, Fire, Police, nurses and doctors and health care workers, sanitary workers, and so many more. We’d also like to bring some cheer to these dreary days in Seattle.
So please join us and plant a little joy in everyone’s life this spring. Take a picture, make a video and post #MakeAJoyfulNoise as well as #SeattleTogether

So annoying and disruptive. We are working from home with a 7 month old. She is scared of the noise and wakes up crying every evening because of this. It takes a long time to calm her down. We are exhausted, daycares are closed, and now we can’t get a rest in the evening because of this.
Showing appreciation to healthcare workers is important but this is not a way to go.
You wake their children too!
This was a great idea for about a week. It’s May 24th and still going on every night at 8pm. Only its just gotten bigger, people with air horns are coming out, even had people start playing music and honking car horns. We work night shift 10pm -6am and has started to disturb our sleep. I wonder if the people supporting with all the hollering and cheering have stopped to think the people they are supporting are trying to sleep?
