September 15, 2016
@ Town Hall Seattle

Pecha Kucha Seattle, KUOW Public Radio, Town Hall Seattle & the Seattle Design Festival are thrilled to present PKN SEA vol. 68: Region of Boom on September 15th at Town Hall.

Based on a KUOW Public Radio series on growth in our region, Region of Boom brings together a wide array of speakers from across our community to explore the complexity, opportunities, and contradictions brought about by Puget Sound’s unprecedented growth. The event will celebrate leaders, change agents and visionaries who are helping define the future of our region, exploring diverse answers to the following questions: What makes our region unique? In what ways is growth affecting our communities? Looking forward, what is your vision for Seattle? And most importantly, how can we create a community where all can thrive?
