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.
Join members of the COAL COUNTRY creative team, industry experts, and community organizers from Appalachia as they dive deep into the process of bringing this harrowing real-life experience to the stage.
Through conversation facilitated live and digitally, PUBLIC FORUM: (DIS)PLACEMENT will hold space for Palestinian, Syrian, and Sudanese artists and activists who are navigating migration, exile, and the search for home.
Public Forum leads post-show conversations designed to deepen the audience dialogue around the work on our stages:
In a climate of divisiveness and seclusion, Public Forum is opening its doors to invite audiences to join us every month for Civic Salons: a monthly gathering where we can come together in the spirit of community to nurture our minds and our bodies. Each month will feature a different theme and different participants who will bring readings, songs, and a keynote address— all chosen in the hopes of inspiring civic engagement and social change.
