Frequently Asked Questions



WHAT IS Q COMMONS?

Q Commons brings the Q National event experience to your community. Join thousands of participants in cities around the world as we gather to learn and consider how to advance good in our local communities.

WHAT IS Q?

Q equips Christians on how to thoughtfully engage our cultural moment. Through immersive learning experiences where no topic is off limits, leaders are encouraged to think, process and consider their approach on the most difficult cultural conversations they will face. Our method of learning is simple: exposure, conversation, and collaboration. We didn’t want to create just another conference, but instead, make an intentional effort to platform the best and brightest ideas that are shaping our world and interact with them. Q is not for passive listeners, but for active leaders hungry to shape the future of culture.

WHEN IS THE NEXT Q COMMONS?

Q Commons is an annual gathering hosted each Fall. The next Q Commons gathering will be held Thursday evening October 25th, 2018. Events held outside of the United States may have varying dates that follow the above dates.

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?

Full refunds are allowed within 24 hours of the time of purchase. Partial refunds will be available before October 1st totaling to 50% of your purchase amount. Tickets purchased after October 1st are non-refundable.

WHOM DO I CONTACT ABOUT HOSTING THE NEXT Q COMMONS?

Become a host by going to qideas.org/host/ and filling out the requested information. Someone from Q Ideas will be in touch shortly.

IS Q COMMONS A CHRISTIAN EVENT?

Q Ideas is rooted in Christian values and doctrine. Q Commons will be focused on equipping both those of the Christian faith as well as those who do not identify as Christian on how to thoughtfully engage culture and advance the common good in their communities.

DOES Q OFFER SCHOLARSHIPS?

Scholarships are not offered to the Q Commons events. However, we’ve intentionally created a lower price to allow as many as people as possible to attend. Should you require additional financial help, perhaps you can inquire from a friend, your local pastor or workplace to provide assistance.

ARE CHILDREN ALLOWED TO ATTEND Q COMMONS?

We recommend participants be 18 years old, however minors are always welcome to attend with adults.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

Please provide a photo ID upon arrival. Printed tickets are not necessary due to our check in and registration process via the details provided at time of purchase. We always recommend bringing a journal or way to take notes. The fast pace of a Q style event means you will be hearing a lot of information quickly.

CAN I VOLUNTEER FOR Q COMMONS?

If are you interested in volunteering at a Q Commons gathering please email info@Qideas.org with your desired Q Commons location and contact information.

WHOM DO I CONTACT IF I HAVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS?

For all additional questions please email info@qideas.org

WHOM DO I CONTACT ABOUT SPONSORSHIP?

If you are interested in becoming a sponsorship partner please email Matt@QIdeas.org with your organization or business and your contact information.

WHY DOES Q OFFER A REDUCED PRICE FOR COUPLES?

We try to make Q Commons as accessible as possible, and this is one way to make attending an event together more possible.

How can i participate in Q Commons?

There are three ways that you can engage in the conversation on October 25th: join the conversation at the local event in your city, host a home gathering in cities without a local event, or host a private simulcast for your congregation. Find out more information about each of these at qcommons.com.

HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR Q 2019?

To sign up for the Q national gathering April 24-26 2019 in Nashville go to Qideas.org/2019. There is limited seating and it will sell out, so make arrangements now if you intend to attend.

Is there parking available?

Unfortunately as this is a downtown location, there is no parking available on site. On Mackay Street north of Sainte Catherine is the Concordia University parking garage, and south of Sainte Catherine Street is a paid parking lot.

Can I buy a ticket at the door?

Yes, you will be able to purchase a ticket at the door. However, to ensure you will have a seat it is best to purchase beforehand.

Can I pay by cash at the door?

No, we only have the ability to process Credit Cards and Cheques at the door.
