Q Commons 2017

Q Commons is a fast paced evening, filled with meaningful content and rich conversations, designed with intentional time to slow down, meet new people, and discuss the most important issues of our cultural moment.


Q Commons presents an opportunity for local communities to gather and learn from a diverse group of leaders, discuss key cultural issues, and take steps toward advancing good in their local context.


Q Commons is a compelling two-hour event that allows attendees to learn from the best leaders and actively participate in the conversation.

Promotes Dialogue

Q Commons is more than an event. The unique experience fosters an environment that encourages communities to engage in difficult conversations.

Encourages Action

Q Commons provides a setting for engaged citizens to become informed on matters of local importance, and learn how they can take action.
