The Dallas Institute Festival of Ideas

On March 26, 2011, The Dallas Institute will conduct its second Festival of Ideas in the Dallas Museum of Art.

The Institute will bring five highly regarded figures into Dallas for the day and match them each with Dallas experts to hear the wisdom of the speakers and then to generate an abundance of conversation and dialogue, both with Dallas' best and also with audiences.

The program will run from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The day will include the plenary discussion in the morning, lunch, a topic-specific focus forum, and a topic-specific roundtable discussion. For the plenary symposium in the morning, the five featured guests will be moderated by Ringmaster Lee Cullum.

Following is the list of topics, along with keynote speakers and university partners with whom they will collaborate. To secure your place at the 2011 Festival of Ideas, click here.
