of the

Columbia Citizens' WikLi


your Wikli-fix: try this on for size

Columbia City thrives because so many Citizens are deeply invested in our place. That takes commitment, and commitments can be … well … sticky. Wouldn't it be great sometimes to just dabble in what the neighborhood has to offer, without any strings just yet? If so, this Wikli's for you.

Arts In Motion 2nd Annual Freedom Festival

Arts In Motion once again partners with SEEDArts to present an exhilarating celebration of freedom Saturday, Jan. 22, 2011 at 7pm, on stage at SE Seattle's premiere community performing arts center, the Rainier Valley Cultural Center at 3515 S Alaska St.

Freedom Festival 2011 will continue in the tradition of honoring the spirit of MLK Day celebrations and the eternal struggles for freedom and social justice. This upcoming Freedom Festival aims to top last January’s sensational performance, the happy echoes of that show still resonating in the community buzz.
