FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 6 PM
Trailblazers: Fort Worth’s Emerging Creative Class
Fort Worth is now the youngest city in the state of Texas—and you can feel a buzz all over the place. A new generation is reinventing neighborhoods with repurposed venues and innovative approaches to everything from retail design, film, public art, cuisine, and even curated events. Meet some of the trailblazers who are embracing our city’s traditions—its world-class arts organizations and unique western heritage—but adding their own spin, and, along the way, reshaping our ideas about culture. After the discussion, continue the conversation at a reception in the Pavilion Lobby presented by Visit Fort Worth.
