IPS 50th Anniversary Weekend Highlights
October 22, 2013 · By John Cavanagh
Over 1,000 attended the IPS 50th Anniversary Celebration the weekend of October 11-13, 2013, joining us as we remembered the past and looked toward the future.
Thanks so much to all of you who made our IPS 50th Anniversary extravaganza a whopping success. From October 11 to 13, nearly 1,000 people were involved in some way in celebrating our past five decades of turning ideas into action and envisioning a bold, progressive future. In all, we hosted 21 events, including an alumni reception, inter-generational dialogues on the future of progressive movements, workshops on politics and the arts, the world's first "Idea Slam," a tribute to IPS Fellow Saul Landau, a celebratory dinner, and finally a gala at Union Station with Joy Zarembka, John Cavanagh, Harry Belafonte, Amy Goodman, Ai-jen Poo, and Sarita Gupta.
In the weeks to come, we will add to this page the videos of the Idea Slam and many of the other IPS 50th events.
Here is a sampling of photos from the weekend.
