What does it mean to live, work, play, learn and worship in one of the most diverse zip codes in the nation? A group of south-end artists are looking to find out with a community arts project designed to help describe the Rainier Valley.
On Wed., Oct. 5, Southeast Seattle neighbors are invited to participate in “Represent! 98118: A Day in the Life of America’s Most Diverse Zip Code” – organized by award-winning author Nancy Rawles, SPLAB director Paul Nelson and SIFF film programmer Maryna Ajaja:
There are many different ways to participate. If you like to write, perform, or create art, this is an opportunity to add your view and your voice to a collective “portrait” of our zip code. You will also have the opportunity to display the work you create on this secure website or in a business or organization that serves the 98118 zip code. More.
