In March 2004, King County Councilmember Julia Patterson hosted a community luncheon to discuss the artistic and cultural vitality of South King County. Out of this the South King County Cultural Coalition, better known as SoCoCulture, was born. Some 70 groups have joined forces to promote and preserve arts and heritage in the vibrant communities south of Seattle.
SoCo’s key projects include maintaining this website, collaborative marketing, fundraising, and advocacy initiatives.

The coalition is open to all arts and heritage organizations that present, produce, preserve or propel culture in South King County, including theater, music, dance, literary, heritage and visual art organizations. Government and education agencies are also eligible.
Check the calendar for specific dates, times, places and speakers in January, March, May, September and November. We meet at different cultural venues throughout South King County and feature guest speakers on various topics. For more information e-mail email@example.com
