DINNER

DINNER

Do you remember that thought experiment in which you list people, alive or dead, with whom you'd like to have dinner? We are focusing on the living. With Interesting People was founded on the idea that connections in the art and activist circles in Seattle need to be fostered, strengthened, and diversified. And that breaking bread together unites us in profound ways.

Currently scheduled for Monday evenings, our DINNER series takes place in found-spaces that limit our numbers below 20. Meals are dreamed up, curated and prepared, in part, by the W/P Team. DINNERs are free to our guests, though donations are highly encouraged. See below for past DINNERs and upcoming dates.
