The Uptown Arts & Culture Coalition is Seattle’s member-led non-profit organization for advancing the arts in Uptown. We strengthen and support an important network of people—cultural organizations, arts professionals, policymakers, civic leaders, developers, and neighborhood residents—all working to increase the participation in and evolution of arts and culture in the Uptown neighborhood and across Seattle.
While we serve more than forty-five arts and cultural organizations, we also serve every Uptown resident, Seattleite, arts patron, and tourists by working diligently to bring the arts to all people through advocacy, relationship building and research.
Uptown Arts & Culture Coalition is fiscally sponsored by Shunpike. Shunpike is the 501(c)(3) non-profit agency that provides independent arts groups in Washington State with the services, resources, and opportunities they need to forge their own paths to sustainable success.
