The Cascadia Innovation Corridor Conference brings together business, academic, and government leaders from both sides of the border to explore new strategies for the region to come together, maximize our shared competitive advantages, and elevate our global economic position. It's your chance to engage with regional, national and international experts on how we can work together to strengthen Cascadia's position as an international hub for innovation, spur job creation, and enhance our already high quality of life.
CascadiaNow! is excited to announce that we are partnering with the Mt. Rainier Family Farm in Southwest Washington for our 2017 Cascadia Convergence and Campout. Located just half an hour from Mt. Rainier National Park, and just south of Elbe, this amazing space contains more than 240 beautiful acres of forested pasture, a river running through the property, trails and lots to explore.
CascadiaNow! is excited to share that the Seattle March for Science, one of CN's newest fiscally sponsored projects, was featured on the front page of the Seattle Times along with a picture of Cascadia Arts Collective members Erin Fox, Alan Sato and Eric Lobdell at work on the Resistance Rover, taking place at the Cascadia HQ (under construction).
For Cascadians in the Seattle area, we are very excited to share the creation of a Seattle Cascadia Arts Collective. Starting to help build an awesome float for the Fremont Solstice Parade, the SCAC grew out of the idea to represent Cascadia & CascadiaNow at events, and to use art as a force for positive social change throughout the Pacific Northwest. Active as an informal group of artists, poets, and Cascadians for the last two years, they are continued to grow in size and scope, officially becoming a core program of CascadiaNow! this year.
The Cascadia HQ is a renegade art and community space being built by members of Seattle CascadiaNow! to serve as shared offices, studio space for working artists, workshop space, as well as being large enough to host presentations, movies, potlucks, classes, art builds, storage and of course a parking space for the Cascadia bus, all within a space that can help show the principles of Cascadia, as well as teach.
