Seattle Design Festival events are free and require no RSVP unless otherwise noted.
Join us as we explore a literal bridge connecting historic Mount Baker to dense urban development taking place in the Rainier Valley. Transit-oriented urban villages dropped in and around historic neighborhoods can create an equity gap with accessibility, infrastructure, cultural, and generational ramifications. For the Seattle Design Festival, local designers have activated the pedestrian bridge on Rainier Avenue South with wayfinding and experiential graphics that seek to inspire residents and visitors alike in building community-powered solutions that bridge this gap.
We invite you to join designers for a free tour of the site followed by an engaging panel discussion in the Artspace Mt. Baker Lofts Community Room (or visit the installation on your own time through the end of September).
Please RSVP. Arrive a few minutes early to check in at the Artspace Mt. Baker Lofts Community Room. The tours will depart promptly at 6:30pm, with the panel discussion beginning at 7:15pm. Beverages and light snacks will be provided.
