Everyday Unseen – Youth Artist Showcase

Join Us!

With the enormous growth of Seattle in the past few years, new businesses and residents are flooding the city. However, gathering spaces that focus on community building and artistic design are closing at an alarming rate. With the intent to stop this trend, Foundry10 is working in partnership with Nii Modo, a new art venue focused on highlighting underrepresented artists, to hold space for youth from in and around Seattle to present new creative works.

If you are between age 13-19 (or if you can think of anyone who that might describe) and you have a visual, interactive, or performing art that you would like to share, Everyday Unseen is for you.

We hope that Everyday Unseen will model how a community art space, which focuses on youth, could look. In doing so, we invite all members of the community to come support these upcoming local artists.
