ABOUT ON THE BLOCK: As an alliance among neighboring artists, cultural spaces, and small business owners, the mission of “On The Block Second Saturdays' is to be a conduit to sustainable opportunity, creative equity, and abundance from the ground up. All donations, vendor fees, and sponsor proceeds go directly to paying local artists, stabilizing neighborhood arts spaces, and supporting future events. On The Block is a collaboration among Vermillion, Throwbacks NW, and Blue Cone Studios facilitated by Seattle Artist Coalition for Equitable Development (Seattle ACED), and is funded in part by a Neighborhood Economic Recovery Fund from Seattle’s Office of Economic Development.
