Festival Programming

The Cascade PBS Ideas Festival aims to foster open and respectful dialogue about important issues. It’s the mission of the Cascade PBS Ideas Festival to offer a program that provides a wide spectrum of viewpoints, experiences, and affiliations, and welcomes members of many communities. We are sensitive to the fact that some opinions and conversations may make audience members feel uncomfortable. As a public media organization, we are responsible to act as a neutral mediator. We do not endorse the policies or opinions of our guests. However, we believe that the best way to bridge our divides is to hear from people with whom we might disagree, even vehemently, and to ask each other hard questions. When participating in these events, we require that our guests and our audience do so according to our code of conduct. We welcome input and ideas from our community. Let us know what speakers or topics we should consider for the next Cascade PBS Ideas Festival.
