Our mission

Space.City is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the discussion of art, architecture and urbanism.  
Since our formation in 1997, Space.City has presented lectures by artists and architects whose ideas and contributions cover the spectrum of creative and innovative thinking today. This list includes both Northwest and international lecturers such as:
