Thank you for being part of ARCADE! Whether you're a devoted reader, creative contributor, enthusiastic event attendee, dedicated volunteer, generous financial supporter or all of the above, know that you make ARCADE what it is. You’ve helped create a valuable community platform for sharing inspiring perspectives about design, the built environment and culture. You’ve helped explore and amplify the idea that design, thoughtfully conceived, has the power to positively impact our lives. You’ve supported content that encourages the good work, empathy, creativity and reflection that improves our world.

ARCADE has had a fantastic 2016, which represents our 34th year(!). In 2016, in addition to publishing three terrific issues of ARCADE magazine with pieces from over 45 creative contributors from the Northwest and beyond – designers, scholars, activists, artists, writers, and more – we’ve hosted corresponding issue launch parties and community celebrations, held two educational salons, and curated a community calendar of design-minded events.

Your ongoing support is key to achieving our mission to reinforce the principle that thoughtful design at every scale of human endeavor improves our quality of life.

As a member of our community, we invite you to make a year-end, tax-deductible donation to ARCADE. Your gift will help ARCADE close 2016, and begin 2017, on solid ground, setting the organization up for an thought-provoking 35th year.

We are so grateful for your ongoing support. If you'd like to make a gift, you may contribute online here or mail a check to ARCADE, 1201 Alaskan Way, Pier 56, Ste 200, Seattle, WA 98101.

With deep gratitude and warm holiday wishes,
Everyone at ARCADE
