Live Audio Description

Nuanced conversation is often lost in the noise, but The Commons is for the everyday expert of experience.

This is a space for us; in The Commons, we are both the guest contributors and the experts coming together and re-imagining the 21st century–exploring our connected past, present, and future.

No booking required — simply turn up to the screen area a few minutes prior and pick up your headset to join the discussion.
