In this weird new reality-tv version of America, filled with mounting social and political unrest, Artists For Progress was born. It began with 35 artists who chose to fight hate with hope, to use their voices to mobilize for change, and to raise funds for organizations serving the marginalized and oppressed.
Though times like these could render us immobile, we’ve rallied together and are refusing to sit by and watch. We are artists as activists with a voice so loud a corrupt government cannot silence us. We will use every artistic medium and discipline to channel people’s fear and despair into the most meaningful art of our careers and lifetimes.
This is art with purpose, helping to keep our beautiful country progressing toward truth, inclusiveness, acceptance, tolerance, and love.Artists For Progress exists to channel the energy of the resistance into action. We make art with purpose, and make it available to the public with dual hopes of spreading our message and supporting organizations currently under attack by this administration.

Capitol Hill Arts District was the first district to be named as part of the Arts & Cultural Districts program in November of 2014.
Capitol Hill’s Pike / Pine neighborhood is the densest arts neighborhood in the State of Washington. Over the course of the past 35 years, a diverse group of arts and cultural organizations have been re-occupying a formerly light industrial area known as “auto row.” The district is now home to over 40 arts and cultural organizations.
At the same time, the neighborhood is experiencing rapid change and gentrification. Existing arts organizations are under real threat of being displaced by rising rents and redevelopment. Capitol Hill is increasingly perceived as being in danger of losing its soul.
The Capitol Hill Arts District is a coalition of arts advocates galvanized to keep Capitol Hill a thriving art scene invested in the creation of daring work, independent artists, and emerging ideas. We promote cultural engagement; harness resources; and preserve, enhance, and create space for artists and the arts.

Sensory Access' goal is to make all the events most people take for granted more accessible to those with sensory processing difficulties. Many autistic individuals, and those with Down Syndrome, Fragile X and other Sensory Processing Difficulties process sensory information differently than the typical person. Sounds lights, textures or experiences can elicit extreme discomfort, anxiety, and even pain.
Many wonderful venues offer occasional "Autism friendly" evenings, but have to drastically alter their productions by changing lighting and sound, often for a much decreased audience. For some venues, this expense is not feasible. Sensory Access' goal is to be able to make events more sensory friendly by providing unique access, ideas, tool kits and help to the individual, all without altering the production in any way. This preserves the production value for the venue, and allows everyone to enjoy the same event - INCLUSION.
