Welcome to Week 227

of the

Columbia Citizens' WikLi


your Wikli-fix: all hands

We've got all these handy axioms of neighborhood living: lend a hand, many hands make for light work, all hands on deck… And even if we've got our hands full, we get to experience firsthand what is, hands-down, a handsome piece of work.

This Wikli comes to you on Thursday, cap in hand: it found itself a little short-handed yesterday. Apologies for the delay.


Live locally.

You can post a calendar event — here's how.

artists panel discussion

Meet the East African girls that created the artwork in Layers of the Hijab, the new guest gallery exhibit at the Columbia City Gallery. The girls will be participating in a panel discussion at the gallery on Thursday, March 14 at 7pm. This is your opportunity to hear directly from these articulate young women about the challenges they face as Muslim women in Seattle. We are collecting questions for the girls at the gallery — feel free to drop by and add yours or email it to the gallery. This event is free and open to the public.

community meeting: Seattle Districts Now

Next Tuesday, March 19, 7pm — join us at the Lakewood Seward Park Community Club on 50th and Angeline (4916 S Angeline) and learn about a plan to elect Seattle City Council members by neighborhood.

Seattle Districts Now is a campaign seeking to change the way Seattle city council members are elected. Currently, the nine city council members run a city-wide race; all voters vote for all nine open positions.

Seattle Districts Now proposes to create seven geographic districts, each containing about 50,000 voters. Residents in each district would elect one council member for their district. In addition, there would be two city-wide (also called “at-large”) council positions voted on by all city residents.

"Made in Seattle: Homegrown Documentaries"

Indie music lovers, reformed juvenile delinquents, off-the-grid hippies and a mixed race woman searching for identity are just some of the compelling characters you'll meet during the inaugural SEEDArts Cinema Series, Made in Seattle: Homegrown Documentaries. The two-day series, April 5 & 6, is comprised of four dynamic, award-winning, locally made documentaries to be screened at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center, 3515 S Alaska St. Each film will be followed by a community conversation with the filmmakers and moderated by Rustin Thompson, The Restless Critic. Admission to the cinema series is $5 per film or $15 for a series pass at the door. Please visit our site for complete schedule information and updates.

Parking in Columbia City

What is the reason for the 2-hour limits on street parking? one cannot go to a movie in that time. and use of light rail is limited due to short parking times. how can this be changed?
