Bumbershoot

Bumbershoot

One Reel wanted to revitalize Bumbershoot’s 35 year-old Literary Arts program, and hired us. We wrote a 3-year plan and executed it well enough that Literary Arts attendance rose 35% in two years, while expenses decreased. We also organized two events that helped raise $70,000 for the 826 Seattle writing center for youth. After working full-time for One Reel for three years, we are back to a contract basis to curate visual, performance art, and literary programs for the 2009 edition of Bumbershoot.
