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 2017, which represents our 35th year. This year, 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 educational salons, toured the former Weyerhaeuser headquarters, and curated a community calendar of design-minded events.

Your 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 2017, and begin 2018, on solid ground, setting the organization up for a thought-provoking 36th year.

We are so grateful for your 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 wishes for this holiday season and New Year!
Everyone at ARCADE
