Event Description:

Four celebrated Hoosiers talk about the role of RISK in individual and community life. Scott A. Jones, Chairman, CEO and Co-founder of ChaCha; Sarah Fisher, professional race car driver and team owner; David N. Baker, iconic jazz performer, composer, and educator; and Phil Gulley, Quaker pastor and author, share their perspective with each other and the audience. Kevin Armstrong, CEO of Methodist Hospital Foundation, will moderate.

They’ll consider questions such as: How does our city and state embrace or repel risk? How to the arts, humanities, religion, business and civic organizations contribute to a risk-taking culture? What is the best way to explore risk-taking? What “risk-stories” in Indiana should be celebrated or challenged? Is it fair to conclude that Hoosiers are afraid to take risks? Q&A and public reception to follow.

Presented by Spirit & Place with support from The Scott A. Jones Foundation and The Indianapolis Public Library. 317-278-3623 or festival@iupui.edu.
