What is Magnuson Studios?
A task force of 25 film and music professionals, led by the Sand Point Arts and Cultural Exchange (SPACE), submitted a proposal to Seattle Parks and Recreation to transform Building 2 at Magnuson Park into a state of the art soundstage. As envisioned Magnuson Studios will be…..
A Studio Space for Television and Feature Films
An Incubator for Emerging Technologies Including Virtual and Augmented Reality
A Home for Education and Workforce Development
There are several proposals being considered and it’s important that the creative community advocate for this opportunity!
Here’s what you can do TODAY:
Sign the Online Petition: You can find the petition here. Our goal is to get hundreds of creative professionals to sign this petition by the end of July. Share this link to the petition (www.surveymonkey.com/r/PDKFPJD) with your networks to spread the word!
Write Seattle Parks and Recreation Superintendent Jesús Aguirre: While there is a small committee reviewing each proposal for Building 2, ultimately the decision will be made by Jesús Aguirre, the Superintendent of Seattle’s Parks and Recreation. Paramount to his decision making process will be a clear vision of how Building 2 can serve the patrons of the park and the citizens of Seattle.
The proposal for Magnuson Studios highlights a number of community, economic and educational benefits that clearly demonstrate the creative industry’s commitment to making this state of the art soundstage a place to gather and collaborate. Write Superintendent Aguirre TODAY and highlight some of these talking points here.
