Since 2009, Oregon Humanities has hosted onstage conversations with writers, civic leaders, activists, and artists in bars, cafes, pubs, and theaters in Portland and around Oregon. You can find recordings of many of these events in our archive. Originally called Think & Drink, the program was renamed Consider This in 2020.

These onstage conversations between featured guests and an interviewer have taken place in Portland, Bend, Eugene, Astoria, Salem, Tillamook, Grants Pass, and Ashland.
Consider This is made possible thanks to the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Oregon Cultural Trust, Northwest Natural, Tonkon Torp LLP, Stoel Rives LLP, and the Kinsman Foundation.
