Inside/Out Steering Committees
As we begin our highly-anticipated capital renovation, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to undertake a citywide initiative—the most ambitious, collaborative endeavor Town Hall has ever undertaken in its 18 years of ambitious, collaborative endeavors. And we can’t do it without you.
We’re so excited that you’re interested in joining a Neighborhood Steering Committee—thank you!
Please take a few minutes to tell us about yourself and we’ll be in touch soon.
While our building is being renovated, Town Hall is turning “Inside/Out:” taking the programs from our historic stages and pouring them into neighborhoods across Seattle. With your help, our programming will be more community-led, more relevant, and more timely than ever.
We’re inviting residents in each of our host neighborhoods (Phinney Ridge/Greenwood; University/Ravenna; Capitol Hill/Central District; Columbia/Hillman City) to serve on Neighborhood Steering Committees, volunteering as formal advisers, ambassadors, and co-curators. We’re asking you to:
Teach us about your neighborhood: Help us understand the unique assets, interests, and concerns of your community. Through introductory fall meetings and informal communication throughout the season, we hope you’ll introduce us to your favorite places to gather as well as the people and groups doing awesome work in your community.
Attend Town Hall events and spread the word: Throughout the season, you’ll be the first to know about everything Town Hall is planning in your neighborhood. We hope you’ll attend often (to help with this, all neighborhood steering committee members get FREE admission to all 2017-18 Town Hall-produced events) and will bring folks along! Please help your friends, family, and co-workers know about us; through word-of-mouth, carrying a few extra monthly calendars with you, and sharing our programs on social media.
Provide Feedback: Exactly what it sounds like, we need your honesty and insight. Please let us know who we’re doing so that we can make course corrections along the way!
Share the Artist & Scholar in Community opportunity and connect us to innovative Artists and Scholars in your neighborhood: this fall, we’ll open applications for artists and scholars. It’s a paid residency for excellent community-minded creatives to work directly with your committee to create three programs specific to your neighborhood’s interests during the spring.
Co-Curate events: Starting in January, you’ll collaborate with your Artist or Scholar to co-curate up to three Town Hall programs to be produced during the spring.
