Last summer we hosted roundtables on Seattle’s creative
ecosystem. We heard from industry and community leaders about the need for affordable
creative spaces, building relationships in the tech industry, developing
cross-sector opportunities, mentorship and professional development, access and
representation for underrepresented communities, and more. Based on last year’s
themes and feedback, we decided to host a resource exchange to link Seattle
creative workers to opportunities that make it easier to live and work here.
