Healing in Motion
Seattle Magazine

For millennia, movement has been an integral part of the human experience. From location changes to athletic achievements and emotional expressions, the body in motion took on an ever-changing range of meanings as it traveled the world. Like many, dancer and performance artist Lavinia Vago started exploring movement early — through ballet. Growing up in a small town outside of Milan, Vago, who says she was a “very active child,” took ballet and gymnastics and participated in sports until she was around 11 or 12 when she decided to focus on dance. “Everyone has different entry points to dancing ..read more

This isn’t your typical museum visit.  Step into the “Tilted Room,” where nothing is quite as it seems. Get ready to question what’s up and what’s down in the “Vortex Tunnel.” And lose yourself in the walk-in “Kaleidoscope Room,” where you’ll be mesmerized by colorful, ever-changing patterns.

These Dumplings Don’t Sleep

In a city that very much does sleep, in a not particularly dense neighborhood, David Ponce and Nikki Tran opened an unlikely business in early May: a late-night dumpling shop.  Seattle Dumpling House opens for delivery (through third-party apps) and takeout each night at 11 p.m., well after most restaurant kitchens in the city have shut down for the evening. “You gotta be crazy to do restaurants and food,” Ponce says. “You gotta be doubly crazy to hustle orders out at 3:55 in the morning.” Owner David Ponce with a late-night dumpling enthusiast at Seattle Dumpling House.

Women in tech face many obstacles and stereotypes that can hinder their career development and satisfaction. From the gender gap in STEM education and hiring, to the lack of mentorship and role models, to subtle and overt forms of discrimination and harassment, women in tech have to navigate a complex and often hostile environment. Despite these challenges, many women in tech have persevered and progressed, demonstrating their skills, creativity, and leadership. Women in tech often face challenges in how to progress and advance in their careers, especially to leadership roles. I have learned s ..read more

Celebrating the Spot Prawn
Seattle Magazine
by Naomi Tomky
4d ago
In Vancouver B.C., spot prawn season is celebrated the way Copper River Salmon is here: splashy opening events, special menus, and the buzz of excitement as a limited-time local delicacy returns again, a harbinger of delicious summer meals. Perhaps because it is overshadowed by the aforementioned salmon or because of the smaller fishery, we don’t fete it in quite the same fashion south of the border. But on flavor alone, we should. Spot prawns are unique to the chilly waters of the northern Pacific, and we should celebrate the big, sweet shellfish for the pure taste of the Pacific Northwest th ..read more

I made the decision to move back to Seattle in 2012, after working in arts jobs in the Austin, Texas, and Little Rock, Arkansas, areas. I’d worked here as a grad student in the University of Washington museology program and loved the small, community-based cultural organizations that characterize our city — like the Wing Luke Museum or the Densho Project — institutions that focus on storytelling. I loved that these organizations were led by Asian American individuals who came from nontraditional backgrounds, including a community-based journalist who ascended to being a museum director and a f ..read more

The Sandwich Goes Gourmet
Seattle Magazine
by Tiffany Ran
1w ago
In 1987, Washington legislators gathered in Olympia to declare the smoked salmon sandwich the sandwich of the Evergreen State, but the decree never stuck. This smoked salmon sandwich has yet to make a lasting impression compared to Chicago’s Italian Beef, featured prominently on the TV show The Bear, or gain the widespread reach of New York’s chopped cheese. Nor does it boast its origins in its namesake like the Philly Cheesesteak. Seattle doesn’t have one reigning sandwich, but that hasn’t ruled out sandwich shops from taking root and, partially because of the pandemic, becoming key players i ..read more
