Glastnost & Goodwill: Citizen Diplomacy in the Northwest

History/Science, Museum, Photography, Gallery, Art Show, Installations
Glasnost and Goodwill: Citizen Diplomacy in the Northwest is a fascinating, in-depth exploration of how citizen diplomacy in Washington and the greater Northwest contributed to the thawing of the Cold War. Visitors will learn about people from Washington traveling behind the Iron Curtain with thousands of letters expressing wishes for peace; elementary school children competing cross-culturally in chess tournaments and swimming competitions; fishermen supporting one another in international business ventures; and finally, the 1990 Goodwill Games in Seattle and the greater Puget Sound region–a major undertaking that further cemented the special relationship between Washington and the Soviet people.
