This Changes Everything. The All New is About to Launch! 
Capitol Hill gets a new lifestyle blog
Civilization (formerly Dumb Eyes) has been working hard on getting the re-visioned website up and running in time for our soft launch to the public on July 19 at Three Dollar Bill Cinema's first outdoor summer movie at Cal Anderson Park (it's Hairspray, the original, in case you don't know). Come to the show to enjoy summer in the city and a chance to win give-aways from Northwest Film Forum, Cintli - Latin Folklore, and Aces for Hire. (Chambers member who would like to offer raffle items at the other outdoor screenings can contact Michelle for details.)

Currently the website functions as a merchant directory for Hill businesses and comes with a pretty awesome filtered search engine. Most of the social activity is happening through the well-established Facebook and Twitter accounts, but now businesses can post stories and events about what's happening inside their doors on a regular basis. 

By adding a lifestyle blog Hill residents and visitors can find out the "softer" news of what is happening on the Hill. Posted events and the occasional blog post will be pulled over into's blog. We'll be promoting this website via our partnership with Visit Seattle as part of our push to help make Capitol Hill a destination neighborhood for tourists.

The website is funded through the Sound Transit mitigation money that the Chamber oversees. The Chamber will be hosting workshops for businesses to get them started on the new website. Contact Michelle @ the Chamber for more info. 

Welcome Our New Intern: AnneMarie Ladlad

The Chamber was lucky to get a smart and polished intern for the summer from Seattle University. As a native to Seattle,  AnneMarie Ladlad is currently studying for a double degree in Strategic Communications and Humanities and a minor in Entrepreneurship at Seattle University.

She has previous work experience in event planning, social media and marketing from an internship at the local non-profit Arts in Motion and as a Leadership Coordinator for the Leadership Development Office at Seattle University. This upcoming school year, she will be serving as Vice President of the United Filipino Club and as Treasurer/Secretary of the Seattle University Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America. 

During her time at the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce, she looks forward to gaining experience specific to the field of marketing and communications. She will be working on the Chamber newsletter, writing articles about Chamber members for the new website, and helping to plan our Fall events.  In her spare time, she enjoys discovering new restaurants and shops (especially in Capitol Hill), watching How I Met Your Mother and Psych, and playing board games.

The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture is now accepting project applications for the Cultural Facilitiesfunding program, which supports Seattle-based arts, heritage, cultural and arts service organizations with capital projects. The program will award one-time funding to organizations with projects such as facility renovations, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) access projects or improvements to a historic property. The program anticipates funding several projects in the $5,000 to $10,000 range, and several in the $25,000 to $50,000 range. This year, funding for the program has been increased to $250,000, thanks to an additional $100,000 allocation from City Council, with the goal of strengthening Seattle's cultural square footage.

Applicants are encouraged to attend an information session to get details on the funding program requirements and how to prepare a competitive application. This interactive question-and-answer  session will cover specifics on eligibility and how to apply. 


Please register for a session by contacting Matthew Richter at or (206) 733-9955. Sessions may be cancelled if there is insufficient advance registration.
