Ghosts of Seattle Past: An Anthology of Lost Seattle Places with Know Your City
April 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us in welcoming author & activist Jaimee Garbacik in partnership with Know Your City on Friday, April 28 at 7pm. Jaimee will present her newest work Ghosts of Seattle Past: An Anthology of Lost Seattle Places, a collection of interviews, essays, comix and art commemorating places in Seattle lost to development, gentrification, and neglect.
Jaimee will be joined by artist Josh Powell, and the pair will show how the project grew from a community-sourced atlas of memories into a time capsule of a changing city. They will present Josh’s beautiful, hand-drawn maps, as well as stories of lost Seattle places, and then open the floor to attendees to share memories of places they have lost in their own city, and to pin them on a digital map of Portland. Come join the discussion!
This event will be presented in partnership with Know Your City in Portland. Know Your City engages the public in art and social justice through creative placemaking projects. Our programs and publications aim to educate people to better know their communities, and to empower them to take action.”
