Our Annual Meeting & Gala Celebration

combines art, business, and fun as we gather our membership with the general public to report on our successes and set the stage for the coming year. You’ll get to see first-hand our amazing past year’s accomplishments, help fund our vital upcoming programs, and celebrate over 50 years of arts advocacy.

Attend the largest showcase of our programs EVER

at one of Seattle’s premier event spaces: The Ruins!  All funds raised will bolster our mission to provide support and recognition to artists throughout Seattle and across the state.  Best of all, everyone is invited! Come experience the broad range of diversity supported by Allied Arts Foundation with students from multiple high schools, artists from all walks of life, and arts organizations like Malikah Festival, Nrityalaya School of Dance, and Alchemy Tap Project.

Your participation will make a HUGE difference

in the lives of dozens of artists and arts organizations by providing vital support to keep our grants, awards, and scholarships fully funded in the coming year. We’ll have an art auction, special guests, and performances by students of Key to Change: a music program training and empowering underserved youth in south King County.
