Lit Crawl Seattle: Get drunk...on words! Two different groups of readers take on our "Transformation" topic
The Project Room is a place of creative inquiry, where different points of view and areas of expertise are presented to an audience. In addition to the arts, programs feature technology, history, geography, industry, and other fields that intersect with the current theme. The goal is to better understand how creativity works for different kinds of people, and to appreciate its relevance to everyday life.
