Seattle, WA 98109
Artists thrive in affordable cities, creating the culture that attracts new residents and businesses. But what does it say about a place when those artists begin to flee for more affordable options and the businesses and institutions that support those artists and serve up the arts struggle to survive? We take a look behind the curtain at the state of Seattle's creative ecosystem with voices from the music, performing and visual arts communities and insights from city leaders.
