Be a part of an inspiring community and mission

I have watched the Big Tent Ideas Foundation evolve from a small gathering in a back garden to a multi-faceted platform for robust and respectful (non-political) discussion and debate - at a time when such a concept is almost anathema; the refreshed focus on regeneration and renewal resonating profoundly. The quality of speakers and the insight and inspiration provided, never cease to amaze, especially at the Meet the Leader forums.”
