The Mixer June 26

Attend The Mixer 6/26: Surviving and Thriving in the Creative Gig Economy

Join us at Clock-Out Lounge on 6/26 for our second in a series of community discussions to help shape the City's vision for the future of our creative economy. This month, Amy Lillard of Washington Filmworks will lead a discussion with panelists from different creative fields who will share their secrets of success about freelancing, entrepreneurship, and what it takes to make it professionally in Seattle’s growing creative economy. Afterwards, attendees will break out into small groups for more networking and to give feedback on how the City can help creatives find the resources they need to not only survive, but thrive in our rapidly growing city. RSVP here, and share with your network through our Facebook event page

Shout out to everyone who made it to the first Mixer discussion in May - we will be sharing our initial findings from that conversation soon, so stay tuned!


Nightlife Advocate Scott Plusquellec

Meet Seattle's "Night Czar" - Nightlife Business Advocate Scott Plusquellec spoke to The Stranger about his role advocating for the nightlife economy in Seattle by problem-solving with nightlife businesses through regulatory hurdles, organizing safety trainings, and creating policy that fosters a healthy nightlife scene. Advocates like Scott are increasingly common in cities around the world: “Cities are waking up to the idea that nightlife isn’t a nuisance to be gotten rid of, but an economic driver to be supported." We're proud to have Scott on the team here at the City!
