In 1962, Seattle established itself as a global focal point, hosting a world’s fair driven by the space age – ultimately creating a physical legacy: Seattle Center. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the fair, there is cause for celebration and contemplation, as our region faces an entirely new set of priorities, challenges and opportunities. Today, the question is about the social and intellectual capital that feed our region’s –and the world’s – creative energy.
The Next Fifty will be forward-looking and ambitious, enlisting experts, innovators, and global citizens to start and sustain a blueprint for the next half-century. For six months, Seattle Center will again play host to millions of visitors. In the spotlight will be eight focus areas that represent the Pacific Northwest’s leadership, inviting the kind of debate and discovery that forge futures.
The Next Fifty is a collaborative effort imagined and executed through extensive partnerships by community members, businesses and organizations that believe in the opportunity presented by the 50th anniversary of the Seattle World’s Fair. Their involvement is the core of the six-month celebration in 2012.
