Ideas to Action
Join the Action Committee
On April 29, 2017, The Dallas Festival of Ideas hosted its third annual event, co-locating with the Dallas Book Festival . The theme was the Equitable City, and the Festival challenged speakers and audience members alike to think critically about how to make Dallas a truly equitable place for all of its citizens to live.
When the Festival ends, the action begins! Festival goers are invited to join the Committee that most interests them (Physical, Healthy, Cultural, Educated, Entrepreneurial) and help select and implement an idea that will most improve the Dallas community. All the while, the Committees receive ongoing support and coaching from Social Venture Partners Dallas and the Dallas Festival of Ideas support team with efforts culminating with a Fast Pitch presentation at the 2018 Festival.
If you’d like to help bring the ideas to action, please join our orientation/ideation meeting on Monday, May 8 at 6pm at the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture. At the meeting, we’ll overview the timelines and guide the groups to create viable, impactful projects. RSVP here!
