Setting The Table: Cultivating Belonging in Seattle
Setting The Table is a monthly gathering to learn, converse, and break bread around an important issue — presented by The Evergrey, Makers Workspaces, and Voyager’s Table.
Our first discussion topic: Cultivating Belonging in Seattle
What can we do to create more belonging in our city? To start, what experiences, what feelings, what relationships, what rituals, what accountability, what discourse, what systems, what common purposes create it. WHAT IS BELONGING? Then, how do empower more Seattleites with it?
Led by moderator Monica Guzman from The Evergrey, local thought leaders will begin the conversation by answering your questions, and we’ll see where we go from there! Our discussion leaders for this month’s topic are:
- Frank Nam – “We Belong Here” Project Manager at The Seattle Foundation
- Rebekah Bastian – VP of Community and Culture at Zillow Group
- Michaela Ayers – Founder of Nourish Events
As for the food: Chef Justin Khanna from Voyager’s Table — a local creative who has spent over eight years in Michelin starred restaurants — will dish up a personal tasting menu with a family-style dining twist.
10% of each event’s capacity will be set aside for those who are not able to afford the cost of Setting the Table in their budget. Please apply here to become eligible for this month’s supper. For those of you that can pay full price, thank you! Your support welcomes more voices into the conversation.
Two weeks after the event, we will host a follow up — an action-focused workshop at Makers Workspaces. Its purpose: to continue the conversation and help your ideas make an impact.
Our number one goal with each of these suppers is connection. So please join us to learn and connect with your neighbors in a warm, welcoming setting.
