Listen to New Opinions
Civic Cocktail offers a lively look at big events and important issues facing the Puget Sound region, connecting community leaders with residents for engaging conversation. The program’s conversational format features elected officials, community organization leaders, journalists, political pundits, news-makers, and local residents. Co-produced by Seattle CityClub and Seattle Channel, Civic Cocktails are held each month from February to June and from October to November.
The internet and a bunch of other forces have us going into our own bubbles and silos,but it is not only possible but necessary that there be spaces where people that are different, have wildly different ideas can still come together. -Monica Guzman
Civic Cocktail is very fun and an engaging forumto hear new ideas regarding growth in the city, transportation policy, education, the huge civic issues that are facing us today, and to actually get a variety of perspectives that you would not otherwise hear. -Dexter Tang
