Arts & Culture

For the first time ever, Bumbershoot’s popular Words & Ideas series “Why This? Why That? Why Now?” premieres outside of the festival. Do selfies communicate the purest depiction of the present? Are introverts the next evolution of pop idol? Hosted by Bumbershoot moderator John Roderick, the evening will highlight current cultural trends, as well as announce the 2014 Theatre, Spectacles, Visual Arts, and Words & Ideas programming. Roderick will be joined by Alicia Eler, author of the “Selfie Column” for Hyperallergic and, Introvert Entrepreneur Beth Buelow. For 43 years the can’t-miss capstone to our Seattle summer, Bumbershoot celebrates the diversity of music, dance, theatre, literature, visual arts, and other creative programming happening locally, nationally, and internationally.

Presented by: Town Hall in partnership with One Reel, as part of the Arts & Culture series. Sponsored by City Arts.
