What we heard: King Street Station conversations

On Tuesday, May 10, at 5 p.m. ARTS welcomed 83 engaged members of the public to the first public engagement session for King Street Station. After a brief overview of the fascinating history of the station we dove right into the question at hand: how cultural space on the third floor of King Street Station can best to serve the community.

Shaun Scott, our King Street Station Outreach Facilitator, helped lead the conversations. According to Scott, “we heard impassioned citizens talk about how to have King Street Station reflect the needs of an arts community that makes Seattle a livable city. We heard from a wide cross-section of the community, from artists, to arts administrators, to every day citizens. Overall, participants in the discussion were most committed to having arts space at King Street Station become a new ‘3rd place’ between work and home.”
