Vera Project-where music and art meet!

13 May

4589706 Have you heard of the Vera Project? The Vera Project (Vera) is a music-arts center run by and for youth. By engaging participants at all levels of music production and community organizing, Vera strives to fulfill its mission to foster a participatory creative culture through popular music concerts, arts programs, experiential learning and volunteer opportunities for all ages, especially young people.

Since its inception in 2000, Vera has provided a unique resource to Seattle’s youth and music community by maintaining a safe, alcohol-and-smoke free environment for people of all ages to come together and experience music in a way that transcends commercial entertainment and erases divisions between performer, staff and audience.

Beyond simply presenting music shows, Vera seeks to fulfill a specific need in the community. Vera is the only dedicated all-ages music venue in Seattle that 1) offers access to education and participation for young people who want to pursue their music-related interests, 2) provides emerging musicians the opportunity to perform and gain exposure in a professional environment, and 3) combines quality late-night all-ages entertainment with diverse music-arts programming.
