Dallas to host social innovation conference
The City of Dallas through its Office of Resilience will serve as partner and associate producer for the 2019 bigBANG! conference. This year’s theme will explore a critical topic to the future of Dallas: building inclusive economies. The Office of Resilience will share the work the City is doing to improve the systems and institutions that affect every Dallas resident and the great work it has accomplished to that end in the last several years.
During the October 31 Day 1 sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to gain insight and knowledge on how public-private partnerships can help progress the goals of Resilient Dallas Plan, funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and adopted by the Dallas City Council in August 2018.
Now in its 10th year, bigBANG! is Dallas’ longest-running event for social innovation. It is focused on driving deeper conversations and innovative solutions for positive change in our city.
This year’s conference centers on exploring the institutions and systems we work and live within and how they shape the possibilities for our lives. Interested attendees can register at http://www.bigbangtx.com. Tickets range from $145 to $295.
