Next Think & Drink at Naked City tackles consumerism, happiness

March 29th, 2012 · Comments

Naked City Brewery & Taphouse is sponsoring another “Think & Drink” event, this time on the topic of consumerism and happiness.

The free event is at 7 p.m. on Wed., April 4, at 8564 Greenwood Ave. N. “Consumerism and the Pursuit of Happiness” will be a conversation with John de Graaf and Laura Musikanski, coordinators of the Happiness Initiative. They’ll talk about the rise of consumerism in post-war America, and its impact on national happiness. The discussion moderator is Ross Reynolds, host of KUOW’s news-talk program “The Conversation.”

De Graaf is the filmmaker and author behind Affluenza; Musikanski is the former executive director of Sustainable Seattle. Together, they are coordinators of the Happiness Initiative (happycounts.org), a national nonprofit, nonpartisan project that studies and promotes conversations about the various factors influencing our personal and community well-being.

Think & Drink is sponsored by Humanities Washington.
