Edmonds Summer Fest coming in July
Urban Craft Uprising, which typically puts on more than 20 craft shows a year in the greater Seattle area, is coming back to Edmonds for a Summer Fest.
It will be held July 24.
"We decided to turn our Spring Fest into a Summer Fest so COVID is more under control," said Kristen Rask, head crafter at Urban Craft Rising and an Edmonds resident.
"We are so excited to get back to work and, if our vendors are anything like us they are too, and so grateful to finally get their small business back up and running. COVID was a huge hit for us all."
Dementia-Inclusive Series: ‘Storytelling Across Generations’
Edmonds Center for the Arts presents “Storytelling Across Generations: A Virtual and Phone-Based Oral History Project,” April 19-June 2. It’s part of the Dementia-Inclusive Series.
Individuals living with memory loss and caregivers are invited to participate in this free intergenerational program, in partnership with the University of Washington Bothell and SilverKite Community Arts.
Taking place over six one-hour sessions on the phone and/or Zoom, UWB students will interview elders in an oral history project. These interviews – based on stories, memories, and personal experiences – will inspire end-of-term performances by students, to be shared virtually during a final celebration of all participants.
“Storytelling Across Generations” is designed for pairs of participants, including a person living with memory loss and caregiver/care partner.
The capacity is for 10 couples, each including one person living with memory loss.
