  Too High and Too Steep - David Williams Downstairs at Town Hall
Today’s Seattle residents would barely recognize the landscape that its founding settlers first encountered. As the city grew, its leaders and inhabitants dramatically altered its topography to accommodate their changing visions. In "Too High and Too Steep," AKCHO Award-winning author David B. Williams uses his scientific background, extensive research, and deep knowledge of Seattle to illuminate the physical challenges and startling hubris of these large-scale transformations, from the filling in of the Duwamish tideflats to the massive regrading project that pared down Denny Hill. In conversation with journalist Knute Berger (Crosscut), Williams will share this fascinating story, encouraging us to look more carefully at the natural world around us and reevaluate what we have taken for granted. He identifies visible traces of Seattle’s former landscape so that we can better understand our city as a place that has been radically reshaped. Admission $5. Town Hall is located at 1119 Eighth Avenue, Seattle - enter on Seneca Street.

  History Cafe - Alicia Valentino
The Museum of History & Industry presents Alicia Valentino, an archaeologist with Environmental Science Associates in Seattle, who will lead a discussion about the archaeology of early Seattle near Pike Place Market and the Seattle Train Tunnel. An inconspicuous city block near today’s Pike Place Market once held the remains of a 19th century shantytown. The construction of a modern development yielded the remnants of middens and privies dating as early as the 1880s. Spared from the city’s major regrade projects, photographs, maps, and artifacts demonstrate that this parcel was once part of the dense carpet of “squatter’s cabins” covering the city’s hillsides above the waterfront until residents were evicted in 1902 to prepare for the Great Northern Railroad tunnel beneath Seattle. Hear the history of the property, as well as findings from archaeological work studying the remnants of the squatters and railroad workers who lived here. MOHAI is located at 860 Terry Avenue N at the south end of Lake Union in Seattle. This event is fre and open to the public.

Intentional Inclusion: Developing a D&I Strategy for Your Organization Friday, September 16, 7-8:15 AM As demographics in the country continue to become more diverse, museums must create new systems to be more inclusive organizations. Developing a strategy for inclusion can help history organizations efficiently create new patterns of behavior that are inclusive and supportive of all types of diversity. Chair: Chris Taylor, Director of Inclusion and Community Engagement, Minnesota Historical Society, St. Paul, MN Deconstructing “Safe Space” Friday, September 16, 8:30-9:45 AM The concept of “safe space” is often summoned as historical institutions approach challenging topics on race, politics, and identity. But what does “safety” actually look or feel like? Should institutions create experiences in which visitors feel unsafe? We’ll take a critical look at this buzzword and its implications on interpretation. Chair: Maggie Schmidt, Senior Exhibit Developer, 106 Group, St. Paul, MN Strangelove: How to Stop Worrying and Start Fundraising Friday, September 16, 11:45 AM – 1 PM Fundraising is critical to nonprofit work, but it isn’t exclusively reserved for executive directors, development staff, and board committees.
