The Ghosts of Seattle Past is an atlas of our memories, a collaborative map of places loved and missed in a rapidly evolving city. In this interactive art installation curated by author/editor Jaimee Garbacik, storytelling and cartography preserve the venues, restaurants, shops and institutions we’ve lost to development in Seattle, the city of the future. The Ghosts of Seattle Past will first appear at the annual Short Run small press festival at Fisher Pavilion in October.
Share your memories of our lost spaces, whether from last week or the last century. Send your photographs, drawings, and memorabilia. Write just a few lines or submit a long-form essay celebrating a place you held dear. Use the medium that tells your story best.Your contributions will be curated into a living atlas to tour galleries and festivals, until it is overflowing with stories. At that point, it will be published as an anthology featuring hand-drawn maps of the places you’ve commemorated, and will be available far and wide.
