We Are Excited! 

Writer John Gunther once wrote, "Ours is the only nation founded deliberately upon a good idea." On Thursday, Aug. 21, Indiana History Center will play host to a diverse group of thinkers who will share ideas aimed at challenging local "city builders to think innovatively and act boldly about the future of their city" as part of We Are City's SUMMIT.

"This is the most diverse collection of speakers we've hosted for SUMMIT, not just in terms of gender, race or locale, but also in profession," says We Are City Cofounder John Beeler. "By combining and juxtaposing different points of view and disciplines, our hope is to inspire bold, innovate thinking and amplify city improvement conversations within the Indianapolis metro area."

This is SUMMIT's second year at the Indiana History Center. The inaugural event filled the Harrison Center for the Arts in 2012.  - TESSA TILLETT PHOTOGRAPHY
