About Public Forum
The Public Theater’s PUBLIC FORUM is a space where art, ideas, and action collide. Public Forum creates exciting opportunities for communities to engage deeply with current events, original thinkers, and the most pressing questions of our time. We energize civic responsibility by inviting people from all backgrounds to share, converse, and connect.
Public Forum hosts one-night-only events, special performances, post-show discussions, and town hall conversations, as well as programming curated with the Public Shakespeare Initiative.
Additional Public Forum programming includes Artist Talkbacks, Audience Conversations, Speaker Series panels, and the online resource Digiturgy. In Artist Talkbacks, members of the cast and creative team will take questions from the audience about the show and their process following selected performances during the season. Speaker Series presents 20-to-30-minute panel discussions after the performance with experts discussing a topic from the show and Audience Conversations feature a member of The Public’s artistic staff leading the audience in a conversation with each other about the show and its themes and ideas.
The Speaker Series for WHITE NOISE is on Friday, March 15 and for AIN'T NO MO' is on Thursday, March 21.
