RECENT PAST PROGRAMS:
THE MAKING OF THESE STREETS:
In February, we begin to look at the topic of “legacy”, starting with the inside story of the women in Seattle’s “grunge” scene from the 1990s. As usual, there is overlap between featured topics, so look above and below for the complete schedule. To read more about this ambitious undertaking called THESE STREETS, go here:
Join The Project Room in a month-long event series and on-site installation about this memorable time in music history.
TPR will be open from February 15 – March 15, 2013 from 11am-3pm Tuesdays-Saturdays. View oral history interviews featuring women from Seattle’s 1990s music community, play your favorite records from that time, and look at lots of posters and personal photos shared by those who were there.
