Film: Curiosity Club Turns Strangers into a Community Following a Fraught Election
KUOW brings together ten strangers for a virtual dinner party to talk about pandemic roller skating, the #MeToo movement, and Seattle's changing political landscape.
In this 6 minute film, meet Curiosity Club’s 4th cohort, which gathered over Zoom on November 19, 2020, shortly after the 2020 presidential election.
Curiosity Club is KUOW’s nerdy supper club rooted in one simple question: Can compelling storytelling and a shared meal transform a group of strangers into a community?
So far, we’re seeing exciting evidence that the answer to that question is yes.
The inquisitive cohort, along with Curiosity Club producer and facilitator Kristin Leong, and KUOW editors Isolde Raftery and Liz Jones, discussed pandemic roller skating, Black joy, the #MeToo movement, and Seattle’s evolving political preferences.
