Explore and reimagine what space means in Seattle’s rapidly transforming socio-environmental landscape in this immersive and interactive evening with TUF, the Seattle collective that focuses on uplifting marginalized folks including people of color, women, queer, trans, and gender nonconforming identities. Artists from across multiple disciplines took the stage for a showcase of art, dialogue, and performances that investigate crucial questions about our city. How do we build the spaces that we want to live in? Why is space needed in a city for art? How do we hold space for each other?

TUF engaged us with art installations throughout Town Hall, plus ongoing DJ skill share workshops, panel discussions, live music, and more. Join TUF for a showcase from artists who challenge white-cis-male power structures within electronic music, art, and media—and experience opportunities to connect and collaborate through the spaces we share.
