Back To Schedule
Friday, September 18 • 6:00pm - 9:00pm
WORKSHOP: Interior Design Jam Session - 23rd & Union Pop Up: Art, Retail, Tech.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Hack the CD, Umoja PEACE Center, Heart Haven Artist Cooperative, and Africatown Preservation and Development Association will be opening a pop-up space at 23rd and Union.

For the past two months, this group of community stakeholders has been collecting feedback from a black board mural at the location, which was launched during the 2015 Umoja Fest and sponsored by Seattle Office of Arts and Culture. The response has been revealing, and our community has confirmed that they’d like to see a sense  of Black pride, empowerment, and business.

We’d like to create an art gallery, retail space, and tech lounge in this pop-up space and we need your help!

For Interior Design Jam Session, we’re calling all architects, designers, and artists to this cypher. Bring an open mind and fill up on your creative juices as we collaborate to envision what our new space will look like.
