Allied Arts is and has been very passionate about this topic as it represents a significant part of our ongoing work for our Grow Gracefully Campaign. Talking points include:
- The importance of Historic Districts and whether we should increase the amount of designated Historic Districts in Seattle and how this might be accomplished when the architecture alone does not qualify the area for Landmark or Historic District
- What avenues or approaches exist or should be created to make this possible
- How scale and character buildings/areas are crucial to the fabric of a Lovable-Livable city
- Explore tools and mechanisms other cities have used to address this topic

Through the Allied Arts Grow Gracefully Series, we hope to inspire the current burst of wealth, growth and creativity to enhance the vibrancy and uniqueness of Seattle. We are moving beyond the unproductive false choice of “preserving Seattle in amber” or “all density is good.” We know there is a middle ground where we can grow to accommodate our children and newcomers by building a City which delights, engages and welcomes all.
Many thanks to our event speakers and sponsors!
Allied Arts Beer & Culture Nights
Allied Arts was founded in 1954 under the name of “The Beer and Culture Society.” We recently celebrated our 60th Anniversary and we continue to honor that name with our “Beer and Culture Nights.” By convening groups of smart, energetic and public-spirited community members in an informal setting and by providing snack food, beer and a hot topic, we hope to inspire free-ranging and uninhibited discussion that will be enormously fun which may lead to civic action.
