Think & Drink

Matthew Grimes

Think & Drink sparks provocative conversations about big ideas.

Since 2009, Oregon Humanities has hosted Think & Drink conversations with writers, civic leaders, activists, and artists in bars, cafes, pubs, and theaters in Portland and around Oregon. Past guests include Representative Earl Blumenauer, writer Ursula K. Le Guin, journalist Isabel Wilkerson, memoirist Cheryl Strayed, former US Federal Public Defender Steven Wax, and Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs director Cameron Smith.

These onstage conversations between featured guests and an interviewer have taken place in Portland, Bend, Eugene, Astoria, Salem, and Ashland. Series subscriptions are available for our Portland series each year.

Think & Drink is made possible thanks to the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Oregon Cultural Trust, Tonkon Torp LLP, and Stoel Rives LLP.
