Seattle City of Literature has some exciting news. Having administered the UNESCO Creative City designation since late 2017, the nonprofit organization Seattle City of Literature is now entering into a limited agreement with the Office of Arts & Culture, the Seattle Public Library, and the Seattle Public Library Foundation.
This agreement represents even greater municipal buy-in to our efforts and shifts the Creative City designation under the aegis of The Seattle Public Library for a period of two years.
During this time, the role of the Seattle City of Literature nonprofit organization will be to advise programmatic decision making and to raise funds to help support program initiatives.
We’re so excited that the City of Seattle is investing in the Creative Cities Network in this way, truly showing that the designation of City of Literature belongs to the entire municipality. And we’re looking forward to working closely with all of these organizations to support City of Literature programming going forward!
