About Simple Gifts
The Seattle Symphony’s Simple Gifts program aims to empower individuals who are experiencing homelessness to connect with their creativity; develop deeper roots in the community through service, advocacy and collaboration; spark joy and inspire hope in individuals and communities that face disproportionate amounts of hardship; and raise awareness of the homelessness crisis that is occurring in King County.
