Seattle Center is home to over 30+ attractions, museums, festivals, and arts organizations. However, it is not business-as-usual these days.  The COVID-19 outbreak has made us look at how to provide entertainment in a different way.

Seattle Center has launched a recording studio for virtual events on the stage of McCaw Hall. We are excited to combine our professional staff, equipment and resources to develop this new platform to share arts and cultural programming.

Performing, cultural, visual and community arts provide hope and inspiration. Seattle Center Studios allows organizations to offer fun and creative ways to inspire and interact virtually, helping combat social isolation by connecting neighbors and communities to arts and culture.

Located on the mainstage of beautiful McCaw Hall, the studio utilizes theatrical equipment paired with video technology to capture and livestream performances, lectures and events. Videos can be posted on  seattlecenter.com Virtual Events pages, and also can be embedded on other  websites and social media platforms like Facebook and YouTube.

Available resources  include: flexible lighting package, complete suite of  sound and video equipment, projection screen, color-changing backdrop, plus an in-house staff to run the operation. Download comprehensive  Technical Information below.
Studio space available in 4 different sizes from 20 x 20 feet to a full stage.

Live streaming content, pre-recorded content, post-production editing, live chat and  Q&A, plus some event planning assistance.
