The Curators

OUR TEAM IS IN FLUX. WANT TO JOIN?

WITH INTERESTING PEOPLE aims to break down the silo-ing of artistic expression in Seattle by curating events that bring interesting people together to do what they do best: be interesting! Whether through sharing their passion for preparing three courses of excellent, locally-sourced food or play-testing new original compositions, WITH INTERESTING PEOPLE is a playground for conversation, creativity, and action across multiple and varied disciplines. W/P is also dedicated to creating a welcoming, safe environment for all people, ideas, and forms of expression and strives to represent the total diversity of the Seattle community through the events hosted and the people gathered.

We are re-imaging how we can best fulfill our mission in a sustainable, sane way. If you're interested in joining this conversation, drop us a line at withinterestingpeople at gmail dot com or via our form!

These four people all work in the Seattle art and culture scene in some way, and yet their personal circles don't overlap much. Noticing that they were all saying, "Hey, you should really meet this person" more often than not, it became clear that a plan to introduce each other to cool artists could also mean introducing talented artists and thinkers to each other.
