COVID-19 Notices

The health of our audience, staff, and the community is our priority during the pandemic. There is still uncertainty about how and when groups can gather. Seattle Arts & Lectures might have to look at altering our traditional program by rescheduling events, creating online-only viewing options, or substituting different authors in the line-up if our scheduled artists are unable to present. If the changed event does not work for you, you may request an exchange for another event, donate your ticket back to SAL, or request a refund. Thank you for your patience as the staff navigates the challenges of this unique moment in history.
