What are BOB Talks?

“BOB” stands for “burst of brilliance.” Like a TED Talk, a BOB Talk explores a “big idea” related to work in community engagement. The talks are aimed at an audience of university faculty and community activists, committed to growing the Spokane region. They explain an idea, premise, principle or commitment that underlies an expression of community-engaged work.
