Yet more scenes from today’s Gathering of Neighbors

That’s just one of the young performers from Youngstown Arts Center who drew a cheering crowd in the Chief Sealth/Boren cafeteria during today’s Gathering of Neighbors; just feet away, we had a ringside seat for the dancers, rappers, poets, and other performers, including the Inner City Ensemble:

What today’s event was truly about was the people. The people who came to find out more about West Seattle organizations and businesses – and the people who are busy making this an incredible community to call home – people like Chief Sealth students Sara Schendel and Sam Westler:

They are two of the students who’ve been working for months with Cooper Elementary students on a project in the adjoining greenbelt; they’re now working outdoors just about every weekend and are inviting you to join their next work party – 10 am-2 pm next Saturday (4/11) on the south side of Cooper. See our previous Gathering of Neighbors coverage here; we have yet more to tell you about — more great community events and news picked up during conversations today (thanks again to everyone who took the time to chat with us!) — coming up later.

    Where are the Inner City Ensemble based out of – the Youngstown Arts Center? I googled but couldn’t find any info and didn’t have a chance to talk to them before I left.

    I couldn’t find a link either, but that’s clearly how they were announced. I’ll be inquiring – TR

    Hi, We are a newly formed group trying to make a difference in the lives of Seattle’s youth. We were able to perform at the Gathering of Neighbors because of a generous donation from the Delridge Neighborhood Development Association. We had a great time, thanks DNDA
