A “merry band” of professors, writers, lawyers, and others — formerly known as “The Beer and Culture Society,” eventually called Allied Arts — had a hand in shaping Seattle into the vibrant, artistic, civically-inclined city it is today. R.M. Campbell’s Stirring Up Seattle: Allied Arts in the Civic Landscape documents this transformation in the 1950s and subsequent decades, including Allied Arts’ efforts to preserve the things we love best about this city — Pike Place Market, funding for the arts, and a number of local cultural institutions. Campbell and Mary Coney — both original Allied Arts members — will appear in conversation with Town Hall founder David Brewster and Wes Uhlman, former Seattle mayor, to discuss the role of citizen activism in making Seattle what it is today.
