Town Square: Tech Has Changed Seattle. Now What?

For better or worse, the technology industry has forever changed Seattle. As industry and the population expand, how can all of us – from the city’s longtime residents to its newcomers – help secure the legacy of arts, culture, and civic engagement in Puget Sound? Seattle Opera and KUOW are joining forces on a special event in conjunction with The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, an opera about one man’s evolution from a countercultural outsider to a corporate culture icon. Moderated by Carolyn Adolph and Joshua McNichols of KUOW’s Prime(d) podcast


Cynthia Brothers, Creator of the Instagram account Vanishing Seattle

Tasia Endo, Manager of Interpretive Technology at Seattle Art Museum

Waxie Moon, gender-bending burlesque performer, a Seattle cultural icon

Michael “Wanz” Wansley, Grammy-winning recording artist and performer of rock, R&B, soul, hip-hop, and pop
