what happens after you challenge a community of ideas people and connect them for change?
Cities and communities thrive when vibrant futures are built on the building blocks of talent, opportunity and engagement.
Yes, and...when the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation launched the Knight Cities Challenge in 2014 and asked people in 26 communities across America for ideas on how to make their cities more successful, thousands of ideas people responded robustly.
Yes, and...borrowing from the innovative flow of "yes, and" dialogue in jazz and improv, SOLID created the #YesAndClt engagement and brand experience for the local Knight Foundation program to connect great ideas together with all of the participants via a digital platform, a publised booklet of 475 ideas, and a signature launch event entitled #YesAndClt.
Yes, and...#YesAndClt connects this community of ideas people and provides a platform for collaboration fueled by a sense of collective purpose to drive a multitude of efforts forward.
