Beacon Hill is livelier, more inviting place to live since Beacon Arts came on the scene. Founded in 2009 as ROCKiT Space, it has evolved into a robust non-profit community arts umbrella, presenting: music, visual arts, poetry, theater, dance, song-writing, movies, and more!

 

Last year we used the TBD Space, generously donated by Beacon Crossing, to bring you art shows, pop up markets, open mics, dance classes and Dozer's Warehouse. Over 4,387 folks attended these events.

We return to our office in Garden House, our home base since 2010 only to learn the property will be sold. Beacon Arts is committed to preserving this historic cultural site intact for use by the community, find out how you can contribute your time or donations.

Black in Seattle

Sunday, July 9, 3:30 -  5 PM. This is a screening of a throwback video that was locally made by local actors from Seattle's Central Area. "Involvement" is a short 20 minute video that was produced in 1968 by Christian & Coffin Co. for AT&T and other phone companies in Seattle, WA to be used to train hiring managers in diversifying and promoting inclusion in the workplace. It follows the journey of the lead actor Josh (Clarence Bibbs) through the hiring and onboarding process in a predominantly white organization. It also features fascinating vintage images of Seattle's Central Area in 1968. How much has Seattle really changed? How much has it stayed the same? After the video, we will be joined by Clarence Bibbs, the actor who was featured in the video, for a short discussion on what Seattle was like then, and what, if anything, has really changed.

This is a free event and is being shown at the Beacon Arts Warehouse that is being utilized for community events before its demise and ultimate demolition. Symbolically, the warehouse's pending resurrection in what will likely be a "redeveloped" space is being watched carefully by concerned citizens. The irony of it all is that despite Seattle's mind-blowing growth and expansion, has the experience of being Black in Seattle even really changed?
