May Updates from SMASH

Updated: May 9, 2023



May is the beginning of Seattle's amazing weather, and we've got many opportunities for you to enjoy it this month! We've partnered with On The Block Second Saturdays for another summer of fantastic outdoor fairs featuring live music, local vendors, and community. Join us for the first installment on May 13th from 1:00 pm until 7:00 pm on 11th Ave between E. Pike & E. Pine on Capitol Hill. May 26 - 29, catch us at the 52nd Annual Northwest Folklife Festival returning to Seattle Center.


With your support, SMASH raised $8,882 during GiveBIG for our Musicians' Mental Health Fund. If you didn't get a chance to donate, it's not too late! Make your tax-deductible donation today.


SMASH is excited to introduce you to our newest team member, Ciera Carpenter-Boyle. In her role at SMASH, she provides high-level administrative support to our Executive Director, Denise Burnside, and the SMASH team with the day-to-day business of providing healthcare to musicians.


MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH


“Put Your Records On” is our Mental Health Awareness Month campaign about the healing power of music. Musicians take care of us, so let's take care of musicians.


All month long, we are sharing community features on musicians and music lovers about their go-to tracks for their mental health and more. Check out the campaign and learn how you can help!
