Q Commons brings the Q National event experience to your community. Join thousands of participants in cities around the world as we gather to learn and consider how to advance good in our local communities.
Q equips Christians on how to thoughtfully engage our cultural moment. Through immersive learning experiences where no topic is off limits, leaders are encouraged to think, process and consider their approach on the most difficult cultural conversations they will face. Our method of learning is simple: exposure, conversation, and collaboration. We didn’t want to create just another conference, but instead, make an intentional effort to platform the best and brightest ideas that are shaping our world and interact with them. Q is not for passive listeners, but for active leaders hungry to shape the future of culture.
To sign up for the Q national gathering April 11-13 2018 in Nashville go to Qideas.org/2018. There is limited seating and it will sell out, so make arrangements now if you intend to attend.
Full refunds are allowed within 24 hours of the time of purchase. Partial refunds will be available before October 1st totaling to 50% of your purchase amount. Tickets purchased after October 1st are non-refundable.
Become a host by going to qideas.org/host/ and filling out the requested information. Someone from Q Ideas will be in touch shortly.
Q Ideas is rooted in Christian values and doctrine. Q Commons will be focused on equipping both those of the Christian faith as well as those who do not identify as Christian on how to thoughtfully engage culture and advance the common good in their communities.
We try to make Q Commons as accessible as possible, and this is one way to make attending an event together more possible. If you feel you have need for a subsidized registration, please contact us at [email protected]
Scholarships are not offered to the Q Commons events. However, we’ve intentionally created a lower price to allow as many as people as possible to attend. Should you require additional financial help, perhaps you can inquire from a friend, your local pastor or workplace to provide assistance.
We recommend participants be 18 years old, however minors are always welcome to attend with adults.
Please provide a photo ID upon arrival. Printed tickets are not necessary due to our check in and registration process via the details provided at time of purchase. We always recommend bringing a journal or way to take notes. The fast pace of a Q style event means you will be hearing a lot of information quickly.
