You have to know about the past and the present to make informed decisions about the future. On that, we can all agree.
But, the ways we chose to share vital information -- particularly about civic responsibility and community issues -- are often really, well, boring.We were bored, at least. So we decided to do something about it.
And, we tapped into our lifelong love of game shows to do it.
With funds from Knight Foundation grant we won in 2016, Charlotte Is Creative developed Queen City Quiz Show to offer a new way to engage the community with crucial information about past and present of the Queen City. That's right. It's a live game show pitting teams against one another in a high-energy contest wraps important data in a game.
We were initially funded to produce 5 games. Thanks to community interest, we traveled across Charlotte and produced 15.
Since then, we have created Queen City Quiz Shows for a wide array of groups ranging from SHARE Charlotte and the City of Charlotte to Wells Fargo, the Arts & Science Council, the Public Library of Charlotte and Charlotte Center City Partners.
Mixing humor and entertainment with surprising and, sometimes, hard-hitting facts, the Quiz Show brings information alive for audiences.
