About THINK!

THINK! is a new series of initiatives that begins fall 2016 on WQED. THINK! is a call to action – and interaction – that invites a broad spectrum of voices and organizations to join together and collaborate around issues that confound and divide us. THINK! seeks to optimize public interaction, and, to do so, WQED is partnering with the Art of Democracy, an award-winning organization that fosters informed and inclusive public engagement. The Art of Democracy, working closely with WQED, will develop a community engagement process that will enlist a diverse and inclusive group of civic organizations. We’ll spread the word and encourage participation in thoughtful, productive conversations. Conversations that matter to you, your neighbors and your community. Those conversations will happen here – on this web page and in the social media realm. And in real time, at face-to-face community forums near you. The many voices taking part in the initiative will coalesce in hour-long broadcast specials from the WQED studios where experts, civic leaders and community members come together. Be part of the conversation and join us for THINK!
