Amateur photographers, expert crafters, and music lovers have a lot to look forward to this weekend with Photographic Center Northwest’s 48-hour Chase the Light photoshoot, National Knit in Public Day (why not!), and the return of in-person performances at Opera Center and Jazz Alley. Read on for details and more of our picks (including places to get treats made with dreamy butterfly pea flower, like the swirly milk bread at Temple Pastries, and how to snag a free Discover Pass from the Seattle Public Library). For even more options, read our guides to the best movies to watch this week, upcoming events going on sale this week, the best things to do from home this week, this season’s drive-in movies, and our complete guide to in-person things to do in Seattle.
ARTS & PERFORMANCE
Submit to Photographic Center Northwest’s annual fundraiser Chase the Light, which invites photographers from all over the world to create work during a 48-hour window (this Saturday-Sunday) and submit it by noon on Monday (for digital) or 1 pm on Wednesday (for analog). Since the competition welcomes all skill levels, you don’t need a fancy setup to participate—film, digital, iPhone, and pinhole cameras are all up to par—but if you are looking to level up your gear, we recommend hitting up Glazer’s Camera or Lake City’s Shot on Film. The winning applicants will have their photos featured in the virtual exhibition and print sale next Saturday!
