Front Row: Ampersand Live 2019
Front Row: Ampersand Live 2019

Forterra presents the 6th annual Ampersand LIVE, a somewhat edgy, somewhat nerdy, always engaging showcase for a dozen diverse voices, each with a distinct take on the joys, wonders and worries of life in today's Pacific Northwest. It's a night to revel in the power of nature and the beauty of community; to celebrate our collective progress and grapple with our shared failings; to see and love this special part of the planet with fresh eyes and honest hearts.

Welcome message from Michelle Connor, President & CEO, Forterra and Ken Workman, Duwamish Tribe.
