Our Mission
festival:festival presents and supports artists and cultural workers in Seattle. We remove barriers that separate art experiences into genre-specific programs and we celebrate creative representations of intersectional structures and identities.

Our Vision
festival:festival excels in investing in artists and cultural workers who have been historically underrepresented due to systemic injustice. We create empowering experiences rooted in artistic rigor through dialogues of joy, resilience, and beauty. We thrive to build a sustainable and accessible arts community.
