Blue Cone Studios is a coalition of independent artists dedicated to seeking out, collaborating with, supporting and promoting local bipoc, queer, and neurodivergent artists. Our ongoing mission since 2015 has been the upliftment of Seattle’s creative community through direct investment in and engagement with emerging artists from typically marginalized communities. Our primary objective is to provide affordable space and creative programming to artists of all backgrounds and education giving those with experience the opportunity to inspire and mentor those who are discovering and honing their talents. We envision a strong local arts ecosystem that lifts from the bottom to amplify and empower creative communities in Seattle. By telling their stories, providing space for them to tell their own stories, and creating platforms for their craft to be seen, we hope to give the most underserved in our communities a safe place to develop and practice their skills.
