Your growth inspired ours. Your support helped us expand digital access to our content, launch new podcasts, host more community events and create more of the programming you love.
In 2017, our reporters dug into 27 questions submitted by the community about the Puget Sound region, ranging from “Why doesn’t Seattle have more stop signs?” to “What do San Juan Islanders do with their trash?”
“Ask A...” is an ongoing series of person-to-person conversation events. In our first full season, we set up different conversations between people from a group in the news and people who wanted to learn more about them.
We brought the community together to experience and discuss local art through a series of nine in-person events in 2017. From live theater to museum exhibits and more, each Front Row Center event offered a glimpse into the creative process.
We met young people where they are—in their schools and in their neighborhoods—and engaged them in hands-on media production so they could tell their own stories. Nineteen 16- to 18-year-olds participated in the Intro to Journalism Workshop, and we offered mobile and “pop-up” community workshops to 432 young people throughout the Seattle area.
