Neighborhood Greenways and Vision Zero Want Your Input in West Seattle! We’re hosting a public meeting for our continued work with the 35th Ave SW Safety Corridor and new West Seattle Neighborhood Greenway planning.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, Aug. 4, from 7 to 9 pm at Neighborhood House High Point.

In 2015, we redesigned 35th Ave SW to reduce speeding, collisions, and injuries as part of our Vision Zero plan to end traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2030. We have some early data to share at the meeting and want to hear your observations and experiences along the corridor.

We’re also studying routes for a new north-south neighborhood greenway parallel to 35th Ave SW. The new West Seattle Neighborhood Greenway will prioritize people walking and biking on residential streets.

At the meeting, we will share traffic data and you can help us find out where people want to walk and bike in the neighborhood, as well as what barriers stand in their way. Neighborhood greenways mean safer, calmer streets for you and your family.

If you’re just catching up with the 35th SW Safety Project, there’s backstory on the city’s webpage.

Words, Writers & West Seattle: Georgie Kunkel ‘Color Me Feminist’ @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Aug 5 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Reviewing the years of her childhood, education, teaching and counseling, work as “Rosie the Riveter” for Boeing, political activity with the National Organization of Women, community organizing, performing musical and comedic entertainment, Georgie Kunkel will talk about her book ‘Color Me Feminist’ at Words, Writers & West Seattle’s monthly book-talk series.

The Southwest Seattle Historical Society sponsors this free book-talk series on the ‘First Friday’ of each month. This presentation of Color Me Feminist, the 35th installment of the series, will take place at 5 pm, Friday, August 5th, 2016, at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

After Kunkel earned her Bachelor’s degree from Western Washington University and her Masters from the University of Washington, Kunkel discovered she could not get a teaching contract if she was married. Later, she was fired four times while teaching for being pregnant so it took her longer to be able to retire after teaching school for 15 years and working as an elementary school counselor another 15 years. She was the first person to lobby the legislature for elementary school counselors to be funded, helped her district prepare the norming process for certifying elementary school counselors, and was one of the first elementary counselors covered by certification in Washington State. She also created and presented the first program about sexism for Region X government office workers in Seattle, and was President of the Washington State’s National Organization for Women.

At 96, Georgie dances weekly, swims at the local YMCA and remains active in local political organizations..Her philosophy is: “Keep moving, thinking and laughing. The alternative is that you die young. Older people should not be shoved aside in life but always serve as a beacon for younger people to learn from.”

“Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next book-talk is scheduled for September 2nd and will feature Molly Ringle and her new adult fantasy book, Immortal’s Spring, the last in a trilogy that revives ancient Greek myths in modern romance. For videos on these and other authors’ presentations, visit: www.loghousemuseum.info/events/words-writers-and-west-seattle. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by contacting Dora-Faye Hendricks, Chair, “Words, Writers & West Seattle” by phone at 206-280-9983 or by e-mail at Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

Last summer I conducted crime and safety focus groups with all the micro-communities in the Southwest Precinct. These focus groups were semi-structured and lasted about 1 hour. Some of these focus groups were held during regularly scheduled community meetings, and others were held as separate meetings.

This summer, I will be conducting focus groups again! I am again interested in talking to all the micro-communities in the Southwest Precinct area about knowledge of the micro-community policing plan project, interactions with the Seattle Police Department, crime and safety concerns and suggested improvements for each of your unique neighborhoods!

In case residents are unsure what community they fall under, the following website has an MCPP locator map, where residents can see the boundaries for the micro-communities throughout West Seattle, with the exception of the micro-community of South Delridge/Delridge Triangle (this micro-community has not been updated on the SPD map yet): http://www.seattle.gov/Police/MCPP/default.htm

Here is a list of the focus groups I have scheduled as of right now, including what community it is focusing on and when/where the focus group is being held:

Presentation and Q&A with Dr. Guy R. McPherson:
Abrupt Climate Change
Friday, August 12th at Chaco Canyon Organic Café
6:30-8:30 pm

Conservation Biologist Dr. Guy McPherson is the leading expert on the risk of near-term human extinction due to habitat loss from abrupt climate change (as seen with Bill Nye on National Geographic). Dr. McPherson will be speaking about our collective response to Earth’s newest phase of accelerated warming.

Local support groups will be formed following the event for further discussions. The event is free to the public and funded entirely by donation.

Dr. McPherson is an award-winning Professor Emeritus of Natural Resources & Ecology, and Evolutionary Biology at University of Arizona. He is internationally known for his synthesis of research on human habitat loss from abrupt climate change, as fueled by irreversible, self reinforcing feedback loops in the climate system, initially triggered by human CO2 emissions. Dr. McPherson has written a dozen books and hundreds of articles on the environment during his 20 year academic career, including his recent joint effort with psychologist Carolyn Baker “EXTINCTION DIALOGS: HOW TO LIVE WITH DEATH IN MIND” a guide to navigating existential anxiety caused by facing the effects of abrupt climate change.

Its intent is to bring professional theatre to communities with limited access, to represent diverse stories onstage employing a multidisciplinary approach, to create theatre reflective of the community artists serve, and to build and strengthen community through shared theatrical experiences.

As a core tenant of 1-Off’s mission of creating community through a shared theatrical experiences, all performances will be free of charge.

Each performance will preclude with a professionally-taught latin dance lesson, the learning of a song from the show, and an an invitation for the audience to participate in the wedding scene.

Arts in Nature Festival 2016 @ Camp Long
Aug 20 @ 11:00 am – 9:00 pm

The 2016 Arts in Nature Festival will return on August 20-21 at Camp Long. The festival is an eclectic experience of music, art, poetry and performance in the woods of Seattle’s only camp ground. The diverse lineup of artists includes music from indie rock to traditional Japanese folk, African dance, reggae, plus dance performance, poetry, and audio/visual art installations in the Museum of Sound.

Highlights of the artist lineup include Seattle’s favorite Clinton Fearon with Boogie Brown Band, Dixie Gypsy Project, Seattle Art Song Society, Etienne Cakpo with Gansango Music & Dance group and Seattle Art Song Society, with many others rounding out the weekend lineup.

The “arts in nature” concept encourages artists and audience members to engage in active participation both with each other and with the natural landscape of Camp Long. Performances will be intimate, ambient, and acoustic in three different venues throughout the park: in a forested grove by the Pond, on the climbing Glacier, and at the Mainstage in the Meadow.

Camp Long’s rustic cabins will house the MUSEUM OF SOUND where artists will take up residency for the weekend creating multidisciplinary installations blending sound, auditory arts, music and visual arts. The cabins meander through the forested perimeter of the park, and festival goers will have the opportunity to enter and
explore each cabin. Most of the cabins will have a hands-on component allowing attendees to interact with the artists’ work.

Installations include work by Markel Uriu, Shannon Noel, Amaranta Ibarra-Sandys and poetry and spoken word by Imani Sims.

In addition to viewing performances and installations, festival-goers can participate in poetry workshops, art activities, costumed hikes through the forest, and a beer garden sponsored by Fremont Brewing.

The Arts in Nature Festival is an annual event hosted by Nature Consortium, a West Seattle-based nonprofit that connects people, arts, and nature. The Festival is a longstanding tradition, made stronger this year with additional support from DNDA. Tickets for the festival are on sale for $10 per day or $16 for the weekend. To view the full artist lineup and purchase tickets today, visit http://fest.naturec.org.

The Arts in Nature Festival is made possible with support from The Boeing Company, Nucor, The Stranger, Fremont Brewing, KUOW, DNDA and Camp Long.

The lineup as announced in June 2016. More summer fun on the way – the six-Saturday series of West Seattle Outdoor Movies starts one month from tomorrow, and the always-memorable poster is out today! In case you missed the lineup announcement two weeks ago, this is one more reminder (notice also that each week’s pre-show fun is listed, too). Remember, this year’s first five movies will be at the longtime spot in the courtyard next to Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (WSB sponsor) in The Junction, and then with the sixth and final 2016 movie, the series moves to the new “festival street” by the West Seattle YMCA (WSB sponsor) in The Triangle. The movies are free and fun and start at dusk (which of course gets a bit earlier each week); bring $ if you can for drawings and concessions benefiting local nonprofits. We’re proud to be a sponsor of WSOM again this year, and you can see on the poster that dozens of great local businesses are helping make it happen too – see you at the movies!

Arts in Nature Festival 2016 @ Camp Long
Aug 21 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

The 2016 Arts in Nature Festival will return on August 20-21 at Camp Long. The festival is an eclectic experience of music, art, poetry and performance in the woods of Seattle’s only camp ground. The diverse lineup of artists includes music from indie rock to traditional Japanese folk, African dance, reggae, plus dance performance, poetry, and audio/visual art installations in the Museum of Sound.

Highlights of the artist lineup include Seattle’s favorite Clinton Fearon with Boogie Brown Band, Dixie Gypsy Project, Seattle Art Song Society, Etienne Cakpo with Gansango Music & Dance group and Seattle Art Song Society, with many others rounding out the weekend lineup.

The “arts in nature” concept encourages artists and audience members to engage in active participation both with each other and with the natural landscape of Camp Long. Performances will be intimate, ambient, and acoustic in three different venues throughout the park: in a forested grove by the Pond, on the climbing Glacier, and at the Mainstage in the Meadow.

Camp Long’s rustic cabins will house the MUSEUM OF SOUND where artists will take up residency for the weekend creating multidisciplinary installations blending sound, auditory arts, music and visual arts. The cabins meander through the forested perimeter of the park, and festival goers will have the opportunity to enter and
explore each cabin. Most of the cabins will have a hands-on component allowing attendees to interact with the artists’ work.

Installations include work by Markel Uriu, Shannon Noel, Amaranta Ibarra-Sandys and poetry and spoken word by Imani Sims.

In addition to viewing performances and installations, festival-goers can participate in poetry workshops, art activities, costumed hikes through the forest, and a beer garden sponsored by Fremont Brewing.

The Arts in Nature Festival is an annual event hosted by Nature Consortium, a West Seattle-based nonprofit that connects people, arts, and nature. The Festival is a longstanding tradition, made stronger this year with additional support from DNDA. Tickets for the festival are on sale for $10 per day or $16 for the weekend. To view the full artist lineup and purchase tickets today, visit http://fest.naturec.org.

The Arts in Nature Festival is made possible with support from The Boeing Company, Nucor, The Stranger, Fremont Brewing, KUOW, DNDA and Camp Long.

The 2016 Alki Beach 5k Run/Walk @ Start from Alki Statue of Liberty Plaza
Aug 28 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Northwest Hope and Healing‘s annual Alki Beach 5k Run/Walk, to raise money for its mission of helping breast- and gynecological-cancer patients. The route on Alki Avenue SW will close for a few hours that morning for the run/walk, by the way. Register online at the official website!

The event starts at 9 am. More from the organizers:

2016 Alki Beach 5k

Great Route. Gorgeous waterfront.
And a genuinely good cause.

When you’re fighting to survive, you shouldn’t have to struggle to eat, pay your utilities or phone bill, or have transportation to treatment. The Alki Beach 5k raises money to provide immediate financial assistance to local women who are undergoing treatment for breast or gynecologic cancer at Swedish Cancer Institute.

Pre-registered walkers and runners will be able to pick up their packets at West Seattle Runner on Friday, August 26 from 5-7pm, or on Saturday, August 27 from 10am to 2pm.

​Suggested Minimum Pledge: $100 per person
Although fundraising is not required, we urge you to gather donations to help local cancer patients. Last year this event raised more than $75,000 in financial aid for women with breast and gynecological cancer. This year, the need is even greater, and with your help, we’re hoping to DOUBLE the proceeds from last year. Ask ten friends to donate $10; make a $50 donation and have your employer donate; hold a garage sale and donate the proceeds, and you’ll have $100 before you know it. But don’t stop there! All donations are welcome, and the sky is the limit. So many people in our community have experienced cancer or cared for someone with cancer that they will be grateful for the chance to help if you just ask!​

About the Route
Enjoy the sights and sounds of West Seattle via a gorgeous waterfront 5K route (that’s 3.1 miles), encompassing Alki Beach and the restored Bathhouse, Alki Beach Park, Anchor Park, and stunning views of the waterfront and downtown Seattle.

About Parking
Both Alki AND Harbor Avenues will be closed to traffic starting at 8:00 am on the morning of the Event. Because parking is always challenging on a summer day at Alki Beach, please plan to carpool, take the bus, have someone drop you off, or arrive early to allow time for parking and walking to the event starting point.
