On Saturday, August 17th a unique outdoor family friendly arts event will be held at the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center in Discovery Park. The event will run from 4 pm to 7 pm.
The event includes “Symphony for Climate Change” which is a multimedia symphony created by Seattle composer and conductor Christophe Chagnard, “Earthquake” by Khambatta Dance Company, and family activities.
For details about the event see this link. For details about Daybreak Star see my preview here. I believe this will be held in the same location as the Seafair Powwow, which is in a field on the north side of the Center.
