Event Description:

Discover what Indy’s young artists, entrepreneurs, religious leaders, and others dream for the future of our city.

The Spirit & Place Festival was born out of a “public conversation” between Kurt Vonnegut, Dan Wakefield, and John Updike in 1996. These three literary giants explored the connection between the arts, humanities, and religion and the role the places we come from shape us—and how we in turn can shape those places.

Twenty years later, we’re shining a light on emerging voices and talent in our community by asking some of Indianapolis’s newest leaders to share their thoughts on our city’s current state as well as its future. What are their dreams and frustrations with Indianapolis today? What role do they see for the arts and humanities in shaping Central Indiana? How are religious congregations striving to make an impact and shape our city’s future?  What does place-making mean for this generation of leaders and how can they—and the rest of us—work to achieve positive collective impact over the next twenty years?

Place-making art activities by Big Car, DREAM inspired remarks by best-selling author Dan Wakefield, and celebratory toast to 20 years of community impact by Spirit & Place also included!

RSVP by November 15

Presented by Spirit & Place and Congregation Beth-El Zedeck with support from Paradox Dental Center and the Goldstein Group Financial Advisors.
