  • Learn more about the Capitol Hill Design Crawl Scavenger Hunt

    The Capitol Hill Neighborhood Design Crawl consists of concentrated events, open studios, exhibits, interactive workshops or participatory design interventions that are meant to activate and celebrate the neighborhood. Design professionals, residents, business owners, and community groups are all invited to activate and celebrate neighborhood identity through a series of design-related events.

    Capitol Hill will be August 17th, 9am-10pm, and includes a tour, a film screening, several panel discussions, a charette, a book signing and an exhibit.

    Our Neighborhood Hubs will engage festival visitors in the act of design via interactive activities and function as waypoints along the crawl. Schemata Workshop is our scavenger hunt touch-down and Northwest Film Forum will host The Consumer Aesthetic Research Institute: Unearthing the Forgotten Design History of the Recent Past presentation.

    To redeem Seattle Design Festival specials and discounts at local businesses, show a social media post tagging SDF or a hand stamp from one of the crawl hubs. Participating vendors can be viewed in the google map below.
