      GameChanger Ideas Festival - American Dream

      What's an ideas festival? It's a celebration of curiosity! Spend the day taking in lectures, group discussions, and a variety of experiences that promise to inspire, inform, and entertain. ​Meet award-winning speakers, connect to your community, and take some time to explore the big questions. We want you to be the next GameChanger. This year, the GameChanger ideas festival is tackling The American Dream. We are raised on the promise that our lives will be successful if we work hard. That any person, regardless of their social status can elevate themselves. Our Declaration of Independence promises us the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Despite celebrating ourselves as a nation united in differences, Americans find themselves at a seemingly more precarious crossroads politically, socially, and economically.​Does a unified American Dream still exist? Can it? Through the lens of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's famed "Four Freedoms" speech, four GameChangers will take the stage to represent each of these freedoms and provide their insight into how Roosevelt’s vision has—or hasn’t—been realized. Freedom of Speech: Nate Boyer Freedom from Fear: Aparna Nancherla Freedom from Want: Casey Gerald Freedom of Worship: Kate Bischoff and more! Visit GAMECHANGERND.COM for more information about the day's schedule, add-on experiences, speaker backgrounds, information about scholarships, GameChanger events across North Dakota, and more. Is there any way to create and uphold an American Dream that includes all of us, or should we hit the snooze button for a few more minutes?
