Film and music industry professionals, content creators, creative technologists: join us next Wednesday 5/29 at KEXP for food, drinks, networking, and vital conversation as we kick off a series of four Mixers aimed at centering the voices of Seattle creatives to guide the future of our creative economy. We need to hear your voice as we develop a thoughtful strategy, grounded in racial equity, to ensure that Seattle can support and grow our creative workforce so that it reflects the city’s rich cultural diversity. Vivian Hua, NW Film Forum Executive Director, will moderate this initial conversation focused on creativity and tech on 5/29, 5-7 PM at KEXP. RSVP on Facebook or check out the event page for more details.
