WHAT DO YOU KNOW? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO KNOW?
These two questions are the foundation of Give & Take, an ongoing program that encourages individuals to share their personal knowledge and curiosity in a fun and engaging social setting.
Economic and geographic trends point to increased social polarization in our communities. Give & Take is a program platform designed to combat this trend by providing a fun, educational, and empowering social setting where people with different backgrounds, expertise, and interest can gather and connect. Participants initially attend Give & Take out of curiosity. They return to Give & Take to meet new people, to learn from an unexpected line-up of presenters, and to experience an environment unlike any other in the Twin Cities. Since 2009, Give & Take has featured over 70 community members sharing their passions, projects, and ideas through short, entertaining multi-media presentations. Social games developed by Works Progress invite participants to interact, contributing to an effervescent atmosphere where unexpected and deep connections flourish. Give & Take inspires strangers to become neighbors, building the capacity for stronger, more creative and cohesive communities.
