  • Call for art!

    Call for art!

    All members of the community are invited to apply to the Phinney Center Gallery’s March show “Bridging the gap—art that brings us together.” The theme is open to interpretation by each artist’s individual vision and creativity, but we are thinking of pieces that illustrate how art can close the gap – economic, cultural, social, political, geographical or otherwise – between people and help us be more compassionate, informed and observant. The submission process will be open January 15 - February 1. Art will be displayed in the gallery from March 6-April 5, with the opening reception on Friday, March 8 during the PhinneyWood ArtWalk....

    Get inside and dance

    Beat the winter doldrums; feed your mind and body | “It’s my happy time!” declares Susie Crosier as she’s leaving her modern dance class to go right into the hip hop session at Greenwood’s American Dance Institute on a Sunday afternoon. As the days get grayer, damper, and shorter, “happy time” becomes more elusive for many. Many of us Seattlelites find our zen and our thrills in the outdoors—hiking, kayaking, rock climbing—but those opportunities become fewer as winter sets in....

  • Advocate for our community’s seniors

    Advocate for our community’s seniors

    Wow! The PNA does NOT own the Greenwood Senior Center building! PNA has been working with the City of Seattle since 2010 to transfer the Greenwood Senior Center to the PNA. The City has expressed their commitment to this transfer, but it still hasn’t happened. It's important we own the building, so we can make much needed improvements, especially for accessibility. The City Council passed a budget resolution a few weeks ago, asking the Mayor to complete the transfer by the end of March. We wanted to help, and kicked off advocacy efforts at Winter Festival last weekend. Over 1,000 people signed a giant card to the City Council and the Mayor, and we took a field trip to City Hall to deliver it. We also kicked off a postcard and email writing campaign this week, encouraging community members to write to the Mayor and City Council to tell them how important this property transfer is. You can also help! Take 5 minutes to send an email to the Mayor and City Council, thanking the City Council and urging the Mayor to approve and complete the transfer. ...
