Chicago Ideas has partnered with On The Table (OTT), an initiative of The Chicago Community Trust, to help architect the transformation of ideas into action and spark conversation about philanthropy and community engagement.
On May 10, 2016, OTT gathered more than 55,000 people at 3,500 tables from across the Chicagoland region for mealtime conversations that generated new ideas, inspired bold solutions and cultivated collaborations.
This year, the Chicago Ideas team hosted a lunch that asked, "What can we do together to create a more unified community?"
As a team, we've decided that we want to get to know every amazing part of our thriving city. To that end, we will visit all 77 neighborhoods in Chicago by October 17 – the first day of Chicago Ideas Week 2016.Follow us on social with the hashtag #Chicago77 for updates on what our team discovers as we explore Chicago, and to give us suggestions on where to go next.
Chicago Ideas and The Chicago Community Trust are pleased to celebrate everyday people committed to doing great things in Chicago and beyond. Visit www.onthetable.com for more information.
