How can a city write its own story? The Dallas Festival of Ideas is an annual opportunity for the people of Dallas to turn bright ideas into a brighter future. For two days in February, the 2016 Dallas Festival of Ideas, The United City, will focus on ways we can all come together to write our city's next chapter. There will be keynote speeches, headlining panels, interactive discussions, stage performances, live music, and visual arts for all ages with one endpoint: to spark extraordinary ideas that could be a lasting legacy for our city. Ideas are vital to a vibrant life. We’d love to hear yours.
