Spirited Discussions

KAWC is pleased to host Spirited Discussions, a civic engagement event moderated by KAWC News Director Lou Gum, offering the public the chance to have a conversation about topics of interest to our community.

Designed to bring policy makers and experts together with the public in an informal setting, the events will last approximately two hours.  The first half hour will be a social meet & greet, followed by a fifty minute to one hour featured guest presentation and a moderated question and answer period.  The evening will conclude with a half hour social wrap up and a casual good night.

For more information, or to suggest a topic, call us at (928) 344-7690 or email news@kawc.org. To offer to host a Spirited Discussion event, please email support@kawc.org.

When the nation's communities at large think about science, they don't always think of Arizona. The Arizona Science Desk, a two year collaboration among the Arizona NPR stations, sought to change that, by raising the statewide and national profile of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) news in Arizona.
