ARTS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD: Licton Springs Traveling Musicians Aug 19, 5-7PM

Our lives have radically changed over the past six months, and many of the activities we used to enjoy have been postponed or canceled. This is especially true of live music, a cornerstone of modern-day Seattle. Live music has the power to bring communities together, to fill the heart with joy, and spread happiness. And that is what we hope to do on August 19, from 5pm - 7pm.

Your Licton Springs Community Council, in partnership with the City of Seattle, are offering a small bright spot to your day. On Wednesday, August 19th from 5pm - 7pm, local solo musicians will stroll through the streets of Licton Springs to provide an outdoor concert. Pull up a lawn chair or picnic blanket, grab some snacks and enjoy the free moving neighborhood concert. Please remember to wear your masks and keep 6ft between you and non-family members.

We are also raising funds by selling neighborhood t-shirts to help celebrate the designation of Licton Springs or líq’tәd, the area’s traditional name, as an official City of Seattle Landmark. This designation recognizes and celebrates Licton Springs / líq’tәd as a sacred site to the Duwamish people and other indeginous groups of the Pacific Northwest. The Licton Springs Community Council fully supported this designation and was working in partnership with UNEA and ClearSky Youth program to host a large celebration for this summer but, of course, plans changed. We will celebrate this designation at some point when gatherings are allowed again. Funds raised will support such future events.

The shirts feature the original name of Licton Springs: líq’tәd. líq’tәd means Red-Paint in Puget Sound’s Lushootseed language. We sought out and received approval to use the Lushootseed word in our efforts to educate the larger community about the rich history of our neighborhood.

Stay Healthy Streets are closed to thru-traffic – but not residents or deliveries – 24 hours a day, seven days a week for the duration of the emergency or until otherwise noted by the City of Seattle.
