- How might we support social entrepreneurs in Chicago?
- How might we encourage people to take small actions that can create positive impact in their communities?
The Feast (http://feastongood.com/) is a yearly event in NYC to celebrate social innovation. They wanted to move from one single event and create a global community of change makers: The Feast Worldwide hubs.
I was new to the Chicago creative and entrepreneurial scene and I was amazed by such a vibrant community. I wondered how I could contribute more. I wanted get people out of their own networks and inspire them to create change; and at the same time, support social projects in Chicago. The Feast was the right fit. I applied and was selected to bring it to Chicago. Later, I joined The Feast global as an advisor to help them rethink the whole Worldwide experience.
The initiative consists of intimates dinner parties where speakers and guests share a meal around a vision for the night and come up with ideas related to the projects or challenge they have
