Journalists, politicians, authors, and newsmakers from our community and across the nation come together to take a hard look at the people, policy and events that shape our lives. This year's speakers include Judy Woodruff, Rick Steves, Pramila Jayapal, Robert Reich and many more (full schedule to be released in March).

Sessions will include tracks focused on Race & Social Justice, Power & Policy, Business, Science & the Environment and Arts & Culture and Keynote speakers. We will also host lunchtime workshops, student lunch and learns and a few surprises. A virtual Headliners Night will kick-off the festival on May 3rd to celebrate and support great public media and journalism in the Pacific Northwest. A fundraiser for KCTS 9 and Crosscut, this event honors newsmakers who take us beyond the headlines and celebrates the creativity of our community. Look for some familiar faces from PBS and beyond.

Watch virtual sessions live or on-demand throughout the week, with select sessions on KCTS 9 each evening. Connect with others through our socially distanced experiences across Seattle. Our VIP attendees will also enjoy perks like a food and drink meal kit, gift totes and books, exclusive programming and more.
