In partnership with yəhaw̓, Friends of Waterfront Seattle presents The Source: Art - Indigenous Reflections on Water.

Water is life, and since time immemorial the waterfront has been a central gathering place as well as a source of inspiration for Indigenous creatives living across the Salish Sea region. Join us at Waterfront Space at 1400 Western Avenue on Saturday, April 13, for an event filled with Indigenous art and conversation as we explore themes of water, ecology, and resilience. Shop at an all day Native art market while enjoying food from an Indigenous caterer, try your hand at weaving in the afternoon, and stay for a special performance art piece in the evening.

Throughout the spring, Friends of Waterfront Seattle hosts The Source series, a sequence of free community events celebrating our waterfront as a source of heritage, creative inspiration, and appreciation for the natural world. This series also celebrates Waterfront Space, the project showroom for Waterfront Seattle, a source for project information and community engagement.

All Source events will include food, refreshments, and a brief program presenting new perspectives on our waterfront’s history, art, and ecology.
