CAC is a South End incubator for generative collaboration
at the intersection of art, culture, and development.
Join us on Friday, October 25th for South End Stories, a benefit for Community Arts Create in Hillman City. This year’s theme centers the stories and heritage of Seattle’s Southend- our home, rich with culture, language, food, art, and legacy.
Taste food from some of Seattle’s most innovative and talented chefs. Kristi Brown (That Brown Girl Cooks!), Marlon Brown (Bessie’s Cakes) and Tarik Abdullah (A DJ and a Cook). Hear live music from students in the Rhapsody project and testimonials from folks involved in our programming. Hear stories from local artists and organizers from the South End. We’ll have a silent auction! AND we’ll have DJ Onesie spinning records for the After Party!
This fundraiser event is benefitting Community Arts Create as we enter our 9th year. By providing support for dedicated staffing and resource development, your participation will help grow the reach and impact of our programs- which up to this point have been fueled almost exclusively by volunteer labor. The tremendous success of these programs despite limited resources- which include efforts such as Taste International, Rhapsody, Mural Project, Backstreet Bazaar, and the South End Heritage Festival - shows dedication, demand, and potential. Your contributions will help ensure that community members are equitably valued and compensated for their cultural labor which is fundamental in building sustainable capacity from the ground up.
Community Arts Create is a South Seattle organization that uses the storytelling power of the arts to create space for folks to engage. Our mission is to utilize the Arts to re-center individual & collective identity through a shared experience. We are a hyper-local movement, rooted in collaboration and community. We believe that the arts connects with everything that is vital for a healthy community.
