SEATTLE – Celebrating a first this week, Visit Seattle launched its series “Uncharted: Seattle,” which follows the city’s dynamic change-agents as they shift the city’s culture for the better. Already known for creating compelling visual content for global audiences, Visit Seattle launched “Uncharted: Seattle” on VISITSEATTLE.tv and simultaneously debuted a new, five-part podcast series April 23.
“Seattle is an incredibly innovative and welcoming city because of the people who live here,” Visit Seattle Senior Vice President & CMO Ali Daniels said. “‘Uncharted: Seattle’ is designed to shine a light on the change-makers who continue to make our culture possible and share their powerful stories with audiences around the world.”
Always pushing limits, Visit Seattle worked in partnership with their agency of record PB& to develop “Uncharted: Seattle.”
The first film to debut in the series follows dual 2018 James Beard Award-winning Chef Edouardo Jordan. In 2018, Jordan became the first African American chef to win America’s Best New Restaurant for his restaurant JuneBaby as well as simultaneously win Best Chef Northwest for his restaurant Salare. Throughout his three restaurants – including the newly opened Lucinda Grain Bar – Jordan celebrates the breadth of Southern cuisine showcasing how it can be both high-brow and low brow at the same time and through his cooking strives to bring greater understanding of the larger impact of African American cuisine around the world.
