For many years, we had a whimsically enjoyable storefront at 8414 Greenwood Ave N. called the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co. What many did not realize is that the store – while indeed a functioning retail spot that sold astronaut ice cream among other items – was really a front for a nonprofit creative writing workshop called the Bureau of Fearless Ideas.
The Greenwood Pencil Box is an interactive retail and community event space created in partnership by The Bureau of Fearless Ideas and Sanctuary Art Center with the goal of supporting youth arts and leadership in the Seattle area.
And now the Pencil Box is calling all explorers this holiday season! Whether it’s a gift for your loved ones, your go-to hiking buddy, your artsy besty, or yourself. Creative Adventure awaits everyone’s wintery expedition through the landscape of their imagination.
