This year’s Bumbershoot continues its legacy of celebrating innovation and the search for what’s next in the multi-disciplinary art forms of dance, film, literacy, theatre, visual arts, and of course, music.
The name Bumbershoot was chosen both as a knowing nod of respect to our city’s most famous weather pattern, and a symbol of the overarching mission: to be an umbrella for all of the arts.
After the Flood, a Web Stream
The Seattle-based Melodic Caring Project, which will provide the video production for the large screens concert-goers see above the Fisher Green stage during the live performances, will produce the Web streams. MCP’s president Levi Ware and vp Evan Blackstone work with the artists directly to send personalized greetings to the young patients, including, on occasion, immersive VR experiences to their hospital bedsides.
Through a live-chat feature, patients can chat throughout the concert with friends, family and outside supporters sending real-time messages of love and encouragement, creating a true sense of community and support.
