Put on by Africatown Community Land Trust
The Cipher will bring together designers, planners, developers, and community members of all ages for a landmark one-day workshop where we will dream, imagine, and project the future of Africatown. At the end of the Cipher, teams will present their proposals to a broad audience — including City officials and civic leaders—generate feedback and further the conversation. The goal is rich dialogue and implementable design options for four key sites that will form the backbone for a thriving Africatown.
Imagine Africatown Design Weekend brings together residents, design professionals, youth, business owners and those with historic roots in the Central District to plan the future. Africatown is an asset-based community development initiative focused on preserving and developing the Central District of Seattle as a place where the legacy of the Black community and African diaspora can grow and thrive.
