About LANGSTON

LANGSTON is a community-conceived and -designed nonprofit arts organization.

We provide multigenerational, multi-genre programming that is responsive to community needs and desires. We promote artistic expression, encourage artistic excellence, cultivate leaders, practice radical inclusivity, and facilitate cultural education and possibility in our practices, policies, and partnerships. 

Langston was born from the legacy of the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute (LHPAI), a historic institution that served as the hub of Seattle’s Black performing arts community and experiences for over 40 years. Langston is fortunate to be housed and host its programming in this historic building which still exists as a cultural space rental facility. Langston proudly honors this legacy and seeks to maximize the activation of the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute through our mission, vision, and values.
