The Big Ideas Forum is a new quarterly event at Glen Street Theatre that engages the local community in the robust exchange of ideas. The Big Ideas Forum is an opportunity to engage with people you might not otherwise meet, hear opinions you might not otherwise hear, and come away from the experience an active participant in democracy, rather than a passive observer.
Keep up to date with upcoming events, provide feedback and receive extra links and resources to help you get involved.
