Let’s talk solutions.
Join us at Seattle University this May for the Pacific Northwest’s premier news & ideas festival featuring the boldest names in politics, science & the environment, business and social justice from across the region and around the nation.
This year’s festival will feature keynote speakers as well as tracks on Race & Social Justice, Politics and Business. Additionally, we have made this year’s festival more engaging and interactive thanks to your feedback!
Last year we welcomed more than 80 speakers including former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro; WA State Governor Jay Inslee; OR State Governor Kate Brown; Attorney General Bob Ferguson; Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best; former Presidential speechwriters David Frum and David Litt; and many more! Our program for the 2019 Festival is shaping up to be even bigger! As speakers are confirmed, they will be announced on the official Crosscut Festival website and Facebook page.
