Dallas City Hall & Plaza
This year, the Festival has expanded with a partnership with the Dallas Book Festival to co-locate events in the Dallas Central Library and Dallas City Hall and Plaza. The Dallas Festival of Ideas responded to the July 7, 2016 Dallas ambush with a three-part forum entitled “Actions Speak Louder” with partner Faith in Texas. The spirit of “Actions Speak Louder” informs all aspects of the 2017 Dallas Festival of Ideas. Community forums from November 2016-March 2017 focus on issues of social equity from five different “City” perspectives — the Physical, Healthy, Cultural, Educated and Entrepreneurial — all leading up to and culminating in the Dallas Festival of Ideas in April 2017.
The Festival’s goal is to create a lasting, equitable impact for the city of Dallas and its citizens. This action serves as the Festival’s foundation -- and the lens through which Dallas’ citizens frame the city’s future.
