KMUW’s Engage ICT brings our community together with thoughtful conversation. Each month we take a deep dive into a major topic with a panel of local experts, and live stream our hour-long conversation at engageict.org and KMUW’s Facebook page. Since 2016 we’ve covered a myriad of topics, from healthcare to homeschooling, immigration to environmentalism.

Engage ICT: Engage Local

The February Engage ICT event was held on Tuesday, February 21, at Distillery 244 located at 244 N. Mosley. We're used to hearing about the importance of shopping local, but when was the last time you were asked to engage local? For February's Democracy On Tap event, KMUW brought together a panel of city and county officials to discuss civic engagement on the local level. Attendees learned what the city and county actually do -- and how we can get involved.

Panelists included:

  • Wichita Councilwoman/Vice Mayor Janet Miller
  • Wichita City Manager Robert Layton
  • Sedgwick County Chairman Dave Unruh
  • Sedgwick County Manager Mike Scholes

Here's the audio from that event:
