GOOD Ideas for Cities Is Coming to Dallas and New Orleans

Posted by Alissa Walker

After fantastic events in Portland and St. Louis and two more events planned in Richmond and Cincinnati, we're thrilled to announce the next GOOD Ideas for Cities events in Dallas and New Orleans.

GOOD Ideas for Cities taps creative problem-solvers to tackle real urban challenges proposed by civic leaders and present their solutions at live events across the country. Thanks to our partnership with CEOs for Cities and a generous grant from ArtPlace, we're taking the program to six cities in 2012.

In Dallas, individuals can attend a kickoff event on April 13 to join one of three teams. In New Orleans, individuals can apply and will be placed on one of three teams. In each city, the teams will work together with their civic leaders for several weeks to create a solution to their urban challenge, presenting their idea at a free event that anyone can attend.
