Seattle is in the process of reimagining its waterfront. As we move toward this new vision, we want to take time to collectively explore and celebrate the waterfront in all its facets: its history, structures, biology, art, and the many businesses, organizations and people who call it home.

About Pecha Kucha Seattle:
Pecha Kucha Seattle was founded in 2006. Since its inception, we’ve hosted 39 events city-wide, collaborating with institutions such as the Seattle Art Museum, Olsen Kundig Architects, Recovery Cafe, the Bellevue Arts Museum, Seattle Center to name a few. We’ve hosted over 400 presenters and have reached thousands of people over the years as we celebrate the amazing people that make our region so wonderful. Each evening has been structured around a theme: Love, Story, Art vs. Science, Giving, Going Rogue, Indian Country, Craigslist, What Was Old is now New, & Improv (to name a few). But the meta-focus is always the same: providing a place for creative cross-pollination that is generative, personal and truly engaging.
About the Waterfront Seattle Project:
Waterfront Seattle is an incredible opportunity to tranform our central waterfront. With the removal of the failing Alaskan Way Viaduct and replacement of the deteriorating Elliot Bay Seawall, we have an unprecedented chance to create a new public space and reconnect the city to the waterfront.
About the Seattle Art Museum:
The Seattle Art Museum (SAM) Connects Art to Life. SAM provides a welcoming place for people to connect with art and to consider its relationship to their lives. SAM is one museum in three locations: Seattle Art Museum downtown, Seattle Asian Art Museum at Volunteer Park, and the Olympic Sculpture Park on the downtown waterfront. SAM collects, preserves, and exhibits objects from across time and across cultures, exploring the dynamic connections between past and present.
