Founded in 1998 and now serving more than 100,000 attendees through more than 400 events annually, Town Hall fosters community and creativity through arts, education, humanities and civic programs. Town Hall is committed to presenting issues, ideas and creative expressions that are timely and relevant, through individual events and a collective calendar that is co-created by presenters, audiences and the community at large. Town Hall is housed in an historic 100+-year-old building on First Hill that reopened in 2019 after a multi-year, $35 million renovation.
Reflecting the creativity and concerns of our region, Town Hall’s program aspires to host the broadest possible range of voices and interests. Diversity within the organization’s staff advances our mission and work. Consequently, Town Hall supports the goals of equal employment opportunity and affirmative action as essential to its institutional values, and to a democratic and pluralistic society.
