This one is in the pretty cool category.
I don’t think it’s all that often that a big city mayor and a the chief instructional administrator of a school district host and directly participate in an arts education forum.
What you usually get, at most, is a proxy for the mayor, or perhaps a very brief speech. This event appears to be different, which makes it noteworthy.
And what is more, the forum directly involves students!

A panel of Seattle students will lead a discussion with Mayor Mike
McGinn and Seattle Public Schools’ Susan Enfield about how the arts
engage, challenge and motivate young people.
