In 2022, in partnership with Seattle Foundation’s Neighbor to Neighbor grant program, we launched our 3-day vendor market designed to provide an opportunity for small, independent business owners from around the city to sell their goods and services with infrastructure, marketing and networking support from us. We also pay youth leaders to help with various event tasks including production assistance and promotion.
One of our favorite parts of Pieces is the youth leadership component. With your help we can hire more of the city’s older teens to get involved with their community’s art scene and add marketable skills and experience to their resumes.
