Come one Come all

We were hoping to have a few new posts inbetween, alas we are too busy connecting people still and still we are doing good better. It is time we meet together and really start changing the world around us. What do you say? Let’s get together and let’s start getting things together and really making things happen.

Eventbrite - Spark Club – Dallas

So for those of you who don’t know what spark club is or was:
What is spark club?
Spark Club was started to start joining all the great communities together. It was designed to help the people who had some great ideas really get the help they needed and also get some other really great people involved too.

If that didn’t get it for you, this video may help:

Are there any rules?
NO! and there never will be

Is there a preson incharge?
NO! and again there never will be, if you didn’t like this spark club, make and host one of your own. If you need more structure than that create a different thing just don’t call it spark. The whole point of this excercise was to keep it nebulous and different. Spark Club is not one for order

Is there a fee?
Finally NO!  We live by these rules, no one pays so no one owns it. No one is in charge so there are no rules and no organization to it. We are all here because we want to create something bigger and better for the greater good. We don’t need people to hand everything to us, we need people to help each other. We know we can all accomplish more especially if we combine our skills.
What happens when the community comes together, when the teacher talks to the artist who talks to the engineer who talks to the student? What happens when the corporate drone talks to the freelancer who then talks to the artist? What do all of these peole have in common? Let’s find out. We are all striving to do the best we can.

This is where we all come together and really make something magical happen. This is truly the place for people to let loose and really save the world. Come in and join the great conversation you will have.

 

See you soon!

YES, We’re Back!

It’s been a long time since the folks have gathered. We started so many good things, and changed so much. Then…the music faded. People have kept things going and there are so many cool things going on here in Dallas.

We have to connect share and help each other grow. We all remember Spark Club, we are still trying to keep the dream alive, on our own. It’s about time to come together and connect. However, many changes have taken place and as always with a change comes growth. What is the growth you ask?

We still have some of the same good people we know and love, but new people have come into the circle. This doesn’t mean we’ve stopped there, we’re still growing and still evolving into doing good. As always the people listed aren’t the only ones these are just the few to highlight for now. We are also asking more of the question of what have you done lately?

We’re watching TEDxSMU and loving what they say; are there things we can do to keep the great ideas going?

Who else is out there? The Dallas Engaged Professionals, the next generation of Dallas game changes. Instead of just talking they really do take action. In their words,

“Dallas Engaged Professionals (DEP) is a social impact group inspired by the minds and innovators behind TED and TEDxSMU. While learning more and more about TED and other idea sharing forums, a thought formed to create a similar TED platform, but for young professionals and millenials. Our mission is to connect passionate young professionals to enrich their community. We want to be an organization that informs, connects and collaborates with people to have a positive impact on the city of Dallas. DEP is a diverse and multifaceted group that hopes to spark people’s passion for their community.”

We have the continuing support of Pecha Kucha and the dynamic duo of Sarah Jane Semrad and her partner in crime Brian Murphy. We have much in store planned together for that.

Finally for this post but not for who is out there we have our team members all contributing and also of course still part of the fun we have Super Bob, Bob Wright, still leading some of the light for us. and what we are up to.

So let’s get started and start changing the world. We will start updating this blog more often and start putting up a calendar of events as we go as well. It’s hard to find all the things going on around us and we invite you to let us know also what is going on, big or small.
